To the right is a color infra-red aerial photograph showing the site before it was harvested. The red lines depict the burn boundary along with the yellow ignition points. The brownish color shows the extensive jack pine-black spruce forests in this area. Above that are recent timber harvests that have been planted or seeded with a variety of tree species including norway pine, white pine, white spruce, and jack pine. This area was not burned.
