Fire is a way of rebooting the ecosystem and clearing foliage for healthy flora and fauna, which are invaluable to the southeastern United States. It’s hard to believe a place immersed in water, needs fire as much as the forests of California. Nonetheless, fire and water have coexisted for hundreds of millions if not billions of years.
Perhaps it's nature’s way of healing or breathing. Thanks to the defense of mankind, the Hardwood-Cypress wetlands have an overgrowth, increasing fire danger and the difficulty to access the area.
Yes, believe it or not, even water immersed areas need a prescription for fire. This not only increases safety but our ability to enjoy the outdoors. Our goal is to leave nature better than when we came, enjoying nature at it’s finest quality.
