AUTHORS: Scott Stout, Loess Canyon Rangeland Alliance, Vice President & Landowner

ABSTRACT: The Loess Canyon Rangeland Alliance was formed in 2002 by some local landowners and some agency people that had a common goal of reducing the encroachment of Eastern Red Cedar into the local landscape. From 2002-2005 the LCRA burned around 2000 acres, from 2006 till present day we’ve totaled around 55,000 acres with the average burn size of around 1000 acres. The LCRA has a constant 75% or better mortality rate on all ERC. Landowners helping other landowners to accomplish a common goal is how the LCRA was founded on and is how it is operated today. The economic benefits are what keep landowners involved and what keeps drawing new members every year. The LCRA is focused on getting more fire on the land to restore our native range back to a grass prairie but doing it in a safe and effective way. Our hopes is that it may increase profittability for it's members.
