As noted in the other photo of this site, roads have to built for access to the well and tank sites. Sometimes these roads span across many acres even on many properties, which further fragments the landscape. Species dependendent on large scale unfragmented landscapes typically do not fair well after a disturbance such as this. But, the income generated from energy development is helping local farmers and ranchers maintain their land and operation.
