Fire is a natural form of disturbance that shapes landscapes around the world. Fire adapted ecosystems, such as the New Jersey Pine Barrens, depend on periodic fire disturbance to maintain their characteristic habitats. In addition to wildfires, prescribed fires have played an increasingly large role on the south Jersey landscape over the past century.
