The city of Bastrop is still recovering from the Labor Day fires that destroyed thousands of acres and officials have stated that the recovery for Bastrop State Park may take much longer.
Natural resources coordinator for Texas Parks and Wildlife are now trying to determine how long it will take to get the park back to where it was. Nearly 20 people on the Lost Pines Recovery Team have recently created a five-year plan in order to make the park whole again.
The plan includes controlling erosion, planting millions of pines, and also replanting native grass. The plan has been measured year, but officials have stated that the forest will need decades in order to recover to its state before the wildfire. “It can be overwhelming if you look at the whole picture,” said Roxanne Hernandez, who is leading the recovery team, “because the whole picture is huge.”
