Blackened country greening up

It
doesn't take much for buffel grass and couch to get going again even
after a fire has been through. Our photo shows a devastated burnt tree
in the Todd River – there are many along the town stretch of the river –
with buffel and couch regrowing (and setting seed) following recent
light rain. How soon will we – and surviving trees –  lose the
fire-break benefit of recent burns, whether controlled or otherwise?

The Alice Springs News Online asked the Department of Resources about
what rate of grass regeneration we can expect in the large areas of
burnt country in and around Alice Springs, given that a weak La Nina
event is predicted for the summer.
