After the flames - Grass Tree mowhawks

Fire had rapidly swept through this forest landscape, burning these Australian Grass Trees  

These punk-looking plants are Australian Grass Trees. Actually, they are neither grass nor trees, but they are one of the most perfectly adapted Australian plants. And quite useful too.

A fire had rapidly swept through this forest landscape. The ground was still covered in black charcoal-like debris, while a carpet of green native grasses was shooting through the surface. A sprinkling of excess leaves shed by the still living gum trees gave the earth some shelter.

The tops of Grass Trees are highly flammable and burnt quickly in the fire, while the thick, lower stems are armoured against fires of this intensity, so the plants are still alive. They are quickly regrowing the spiky leaf forms that make them look familiar to any parent of punk teenagers.
