Prescribed burns in Valencia

Prescribed burns has only been introduced in the Valencia region (eastern Iberia) very recently (end of 2019), and are undertaken by the Valencia government. One of the first burns was performed Castell de Castells (Alacant province) in March 2021, it was of relatively low intensity (compare with natural wildfires in the area). The area was dominated by a mediterranean shrublands with few young pines (P. halepensis). One year latter the area is a paradise of flowers; below are a few of them. Thank you to J. Fabado and X. Riera (Jardí Botànic de Valencia) for their help in the species names.
