This burn is 5 years old...they should have taken all these dead trees out of there and planted new ones...it is so barron where the fire went through.

Very sad, maybe they are waiting for nature to take its own course. As it invariably does.

I think it would cost too much to clear this area (it was a big burn) and no one wants to pay for it. Sad.

Great shot, Crafty! It is nice to see the new growth starting up. Nature will take care of itself, it just takes a while. Beautiful area!

It is very sad Poulet...but like Doug said it i starting to re-grow a little & that's a great thing to see.

Crafty, yes, the burned trees are horrible to look at. They remind us of what happened and what we miss. It will re-grow. Not in my lifetime but maybe in my grandchildrens lifetime. I say buy a live Christmas tree and take it out there after the holidays and plant it. :) I used to do that.

That's a great idea, then take the kids back each year to watch "their" tree grow. Thanks MMom

Sad, yet there's still beauty to behold.
What I find strange is pines release seeds when the cones get heated during fires, usually there'd be new growth within a year or so.
