Pine Skeletons

Pine trees do not like salt water. These are the skeletons remaining of this once fully-wooded island. The hurricanes of the previous decade, especially 2004 & 2005, devastated this little barrier island.

After eight years, finally vegetation is almost back to normal. The trees, however, take much longer to regrow.

Funny thing, salt water doesn’t kill Live Oaks.

The great birds are using the skeletons for nesting now.
