Absence of Fire

East Lake, Florida 34688, United States

Created By: Brooker Creek Preserve Environmental Education Center


Remember back to the area where the wildfire occurred? Looks a little different here huh? Not quite as open, less wildflowers, what else do you notice? This area hasn’t seen fire in a long time. As mentioned in Stop #9, when there is no fire, fuels can build up in the form of vegetation. Here you will see more oak trees, which are not adapted to survive fire. Think back to the area were the wildfire occurred. Did you notice as many oak trees there?
