In this 1-hour webinar, Jane Mangold, professor and Extension specialist at Montana State University, discusses how fire affects plant communities, including weeds, based on fire severity and how prevalent weeds were prior to the fire. It will also touch upon how fire suppression activities can lead to an increase in weeds. Fire presents an opportunity to manage weeds, and this will be discussed as well, including weed management through herbicides, biological control, and revegetation.
