Tree Tuesdsay

From Lofty,

A series of the small patch of forest that was selectively burned, one year on.

What a difference a year can make. The area doesn’t look fire ravaged at all. Maybe it’s because of the regrowth on the tall trees,. That’s not something I’ve seen before and it’s fascinating. Thanks for sharing. Lofty.

    That green in the last photo is so bright! It reminds me of spring / early summer, I can practically smell it (this is a good thing).
    I’m glad everything is recovering!

    The trees that thrive best on these hills are the “stringybarks”, eucalypts protected by a fire resistant layer of insulating bark. It’s also why they make relatively poor firewood, a less than year old piece thrown on a fire can just about put it out. Fallen trees are best left on the ground for two or more winters before drying for the next winters fire. One tree trimmer working around the local power lines called them ‘weeds”, I sternly told him that they were endemic to the region and superbly adapted to the conditions.
