A brush-control reference guide, “Brush Management Past, Present, Future,” is now available. Allan McGinty, Texas Cooperative Extension range specialist at San Angelo, says the book is for anybody who works with rangelands or who is confronted with brush problems of any kind whether they manage their land for livestock, hunting, wildlife watching or aesthetics. The book is broken into sections on the four methods of brush management: mechanical, chemical, biological and fire. Each of the sections is divided into chapters on the history, current status and future prospects of that particular practice. Economic and financial questions, water, wildlife and environmental issues also are covered. The book is available through Texas A&M University Press in both soft ($26) and hardbound ($50) editions.
