Eller Seep and Reed Branch Controlled Burns

From one corner of North Carolina to the other, we burn for pitcher plants.  Earlier this week, TNC-North Carolina and TNC-Georgia teamed up with Southern Blue Ridge FLN partners North Carolina Forest Service, Georgia ForestWatch, KD Ecological Services, MountainTrue, and Wildland Restoration International to conduct some small, yet highly important controlled burns on two of the south’s few remaining Green Pitcher Plant populations. Here are some photos by Adam and Bruce Roberts.  More photos from Bruce on his website.

Here’s what they’ll look like in about a month.   Stay tuned.
