BLUE OAK on the woodland grass areas of Tulare County are frequently not killed by burning. Such treatments are effective in killing much of the non-sprouting brush, but sprouting species such as poison oak rapidly recover. There is always the danger that fires will escape onto other properties, including the National Forests and Parks. For these reasons, interest in methods of control in addition to fire have existed for many years in Tulare County.
