Cabbage Tree Palm after fire

There was some backburning done in my local park, try to reduce the fire load. The trees seem to thrive afterwards.


  1. I know that the Cabbage-tree Palm is endemic to the Sydney basin, but I find its physical shape unappealing.

  2. Interesting how when things are put through the fire...they seem to thrive.
    Life lesson.

  3. I am wondering if it would not be better to put a fire through our block rather than to try and remove the fuel load by cutting and raking -- I am concerned that it is carrying too much fuel and while we have no buildings to be damaged our neighbours do.

    However while our bush likes fire I believe it likes hot fire and not crawling back burning type fire so the burning is not doing it any good.

  4. Julie those fronds are sure spiky.
    Dawn, agree - tempered steel and all that.
    Joan - tempting but what could go wrong?

  5. It's fascinating how the Australian bush does that after fire.
