Fire damaged pine trees, Pinus contortus

Yellowstones historic 1988 fires destroyed vast expanses of forest. Here scorched, dead stands of lodgepole pine stand testament to these fires, and to the renewal of these forests. Seedling and small lodgepole pines can be seen emerging between the dead trees, growing quickly on the nutrients left behind the fires. Southern Yellowstone National Park.
