Under ideal conditions, Table Mountain National Park (TMNP) prescribe some burns in some sections of the park. The burns are done for a number of reasons, to rejuvenate the fire-adapted and fire-dependent vegetation (fynbos) and to reduce fire hazards by reducing unnecessary “fuel” (e.g. alien vegetation that has been hacked from a particular area. Alien plants often burn hotter and faster than indigenous species and therefore pose a threat to the natural plant species and surrounding urban areas) I took these pics from the Tonic office in Cape Town.
