Invasive Grasses: Wildfires Are The Real Threat!
Buffelgrass, Fountain Grass & Red Brome

Invasive grasses and plants often change the fire patterns in areas they invade. For example, they can burn at extreme temperatures.

  • Buffelgrass burns hotter than 1400F, with flames higher than 20 feet.

  • An area the size of a football field can burn in less than three minutes!

  • Their dense growth supports hot fires that kill saguaros and other signature plants of the Sonoran Desert.

  • Wildfires threaten residential areas, destroy infrastructure, disrupt air and ground transportation, and compromise firefighter safety, as well as yours.
