Brush-covered lands in California are a challenge to the landowner; they may be a blessing or a problem, depending on the management. If the brush cover is manipulated to produce animal feed then value is received from the land; however, if the plant cover becomes a dense thicket, it not only produces little feed but is a fire hazard during dry summer months.
