Great find thanks Luke. Looks like this area may have been recently burnt? Do you think this is a post fire flourish response?

Hi Micheal

This area was not part of the Pipeline burn that was done last year and the population along Pipeline Rd near the crossing is growing very well too but was not burnt either so I don't think this is a post fire flourish.

Thanks Luke - perhaps it is a sensitive species
