Vegetation surveys and soil samples were surveyed for 2 years following a fire on Cumberland Island, Georgia. Data was compared with measurements taken from unburned, old burn, and prescribed burn locations. Mature hardwood species were little affected by the fire. Mature pine species exhibited high mortality rates. All species of scrub vegetation was present among the regrowth.
