That is what I had read. It is nice to hear it more firsthand. We can smell these fires all the way up in Montgomery County sometimes. When we first moved here (about 11 years ago), I thought so many people were burning their fireplaces that it was affecting the air. But, no. :)

Ranchers on the Texas Gulf Coast have been burning the salt marsh in the fall for over 100 years. The marsh is used for winter pasture (too many 'skeeters in the summer time). The predominate grass species in our salt marsh is cord grass (locally called salt grass ). They are corse bunch grasses of little grazing value unless the old growth is burned off. The new growth is much higher in nutritional value.
