This is a recovering area where 2 seasons ago, a thick forrest of 'exotic trees' prevented any undergrowth.
This was a fire circle where the cut brush was stacked and burnt. Look at the growth of pioneer plants and indigenous seed stock, which has sprouted and is about knee high.
Volunteers from the Cape Bird Club regularly clear regrowth of 'exotic plants'.
