VELDFIRES IN SOUTH AFRICA
Acrylic on canvas.
ART: Acrylic
Original SOLD.
Veldfires (veld, forest and mountain fires in terms of the Act’s definition) are a persistent problem in South Africa. They frequently cause emergencies, and often grow to disastrous proportions. At the same time, veldfires are natural – they occur as part of the normal process of events in grassland, woodlands and fynbos, and even sometimes in natural forests. They have occurred since time immemorial, caused naturally by lightning and, in the Cape Mountains, by falling rocks.
The earliest humans began to use fire a million years ago, and modern humans have been using veldfires for hunting and for managing their environment for possibly hundreds of thousands of years. We continue to use fire in veld and forest, to manage grazing and habitats, and as a measure to help prevent uncontrolled fires.
