Stentor at Debitage finds a case where land is actually better off under military control than under the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection. Partly it's a lucky accident, and partly it's a commentary on the way environmental policy is made piecemeal, so that clean-air laws aren't necessarily rethought when we learn that controlled fires are benign. (A dissertation that compares neighboring forests is here (PDF).)
