Description: Understory shrubs growing on organic soils in pocosins of the eastern North Carolina coastal plain can become a particularly severe fire hazard during certain dry seasons of the year. These shrubs commonly form dense thickets of highly flammable fuels capable of supporting very intense wildfires. Such fires, once started, often have the potential for widespread destruction because of control difficulties in these relatively unbroken and inaccessible expanses of vegetation.
