Volunteers help city get rid of "unwanted canopy" for prarie restoration; Fort Worth, TX; 2/18/09

Prairie Power FWWeekly - Fort Worth,TX,USA
The city’s best example of native grassland prairie isn’t all that great anymore. Trees have been taking over Tandy Hills Natural Area for years, choking out the wild grasses and flowers that have made the park unique in North Texas.
Now, after years of neglect, the city of Fort Worth is showing a renewed commitment to restoring the park to the way it looked back when wildfires periodically cleared the land of trees and promoted the growth of grasses that sustained huge herds of buffalo.
