Florida Scrub Wildfire

Here are some photos of the wildfire results out here. Fire is critical to maintaining the Florida scrub. Without fire, the trees grow tall enough to shade out the scrub plants and before you know it, you have a regular ol' forest. As bad as this looks right now, in a couple of year this will be a thriving scrub habitat again.  Here are some photos of this same scrub last summer.
