I bring you FIRE!

As part of a phragmities eradication project, the biomass was burned off after the reed was killed.

Phragmities is a highly invasive plant that takes over marshes.

Cutting or digging it up encourages it to spread.

I got 800 shots of the burn.
I promise I will only post a few.

I saw all the smoke yesterday and went over to investigate. I hope they find a viable solution to control this plant! It has ruined a lot of good wetlands.
