The natural grazing habits of goats and sheep quickly reduce acres of fire fuel, poison oak, and other invasive species, making land safer and more pleasant to navigate. Furthermore, the animal’s digestive system destroys ingested seeds, eliminating unwanted propagation.
First Spring Site Review
After a light rainy season in Ojai, CA, we visit a site where we performed targeted grazing and silviculture. Much of the land was hit hard by the Thomas Fire in 2017. When we first arrived in August of 2020, brush had piled up again and many surviving Oaks were scorched. We restored the Oak woodlands by tending the "wild" with humans and ruminants.
