30. The Fire Area in Tyresta

A major forest fire struck the national park in 1999, before I ever had visited it. Since it's a national park, the area is left to develop in its own pace, and the shrubs become more impenetrable for each year. But by time the trees will grow bigger and outgrow the shrubs. The forecast is that by 2200 the forest will be like it was before.
