This graph, produced by RAP, illustrates how vegetation responded to a prescribed fire in Nebraska in 2015, which was designed to remove encroaching conifers to improve forage for livestock and wildlife. It shows that average tree cover decreased from 18% to 2% post-fire, making more room for perennial grasses and forbs.
