Caption: Forest fire. View of a pitch pine (Pinus rigida) burning in a controlled forest fire. Controlled burning may be carried out to destroy the dry combustible material that can fuel huge forest fires during dry periods of the year. Fires are also used to manage certain ecosystems that would otherwise eventually grow into dense forest. Photographed at Long Pond, Pennsylvania, USA.
