The Pine Barrens Wildfires

Fire is one of the things that have shaped the Pine Barrens and made it the unique environment it is today. However, wildfires which become prolific in times of drought, can be very dangerous and destroy places that fire should never have touched. This page showed the damage and recovery of a large forest fire in 2022. However in the past year, many other fires have started so this page is changing to show the damage and eventual recovery of wildfires in the Pines.


After The Fires

Although the Pine Barrens recover from fire surprisingly fast, the initial damage can be haunting and sad.
