i was shown some areas that were burned (controlled burn by the USFS) in the mt rogers area just a few months ago & you could hardly tell they were burnt.
on the other hand, linville gorge has been slow to recover from the 2002 fire, & now there's over 3000 more acres more that recently burned.
that's something i've never studied into, but no doubt there are a number a variables that determine how quickly a land area recovers from a fire.
it nice to see when land does recover quickly. you know it's benefited from the fire, yet life has sprung back.
don`t leave the CREATOR out of the creation!
