Burnt gorse, Stone Quarry Bottom, New Forest
Burnt gorse, Stone Quarry Bottom, New Forest
"Controlled burning" is part of the heathland management carried out by the Forestry Commission. It prevents encroachment of scrub on the heathland and improves the grazing for cattle and ponies turned out on the open Forest. I think this area was burned in the spring of 2007. The burning is usually carried out early in the spring, when conditions are dry enough to burn at the surface, but not so dry that the fire scorches the thin soil itself.
