A sequoia seedling that sprouted the spring after a prescribed fire

This sequoia sapling emerged in the spring after a prescribed fire. Fire creates the ideal conditions for sequoia regeneration: it opens the cones to release the seeds, creates gaps in the canopy for this sun-loving species, and forms nutrient-rich soil for the seeds.
