Controlled Burn

I sometimes come across smoldering underbrush. This was in the Withlacoochee State Forest. My understanding is that by controlled burns, they are actually helping the environment. It allows more sunlight in, and creates pathways for animals. Why try to control the environment? Can't they just leave mother nature alone? Man has caused enough harm, I believe.

You can see this will take years to recover. Its just an ugly scar and vegetation has been destroyed
