Author's notes

Pre-fire, this was a copse of young muttonwood plants, probably 50-70 stems, most likely arisen by root-suckering off a single original plant. The Sept 15 fire would have been quite hot at this upper slope location close to its point of origin. A few of the trees have some tiny tufts of new leaves in the upper canopy (out of reach of a photo), but I also found signs of basal resprouting, both off visible roots at ground level (1st 2 photos), from the base of the trunk (3rd photo) and just emerging out of the ground from buried roots (no photo). I have some hope they we may eventually get a muttonwood copse back in this area, but suspect it will be a slow process. The feral deer who pass through occasionally will probably inhibit regrowth. They had already been browsing the more exposed outer branches of the patch pre-fire.
