Prescribed Burn to Reduce Fuels and Restore Grassland Savanna on Cedar Hill State Park

Filed under: City |

Texas Parks and Wildlife (TWPD) will conduct a 400-acre prescribed burn  located in the Cedar Hill State Park in Dallas County on February 21st, starting at about  12:00 p.m. and running through the afternoon, weather conditions permitting.

The prescribed burn is located approximately 3 miles West of Cedar Hill off FM 1382 on park property.

The purpose of the prescribed burn is to reduce the brush density and encourage native grasses which will reduce the wildfire potential and improve water quality and quantity,  according to Joshua Choate, Assistant Park Superintendent for Cedar Hill State Park.

The prescribed burn will be managed by TPWD in cooperation with the Texas  Forest Service, Cedar Hill Fire and other local jurisdictions.
