How To: Repair a dome
Don't count this dome out yet!

Usually come spring in the swamp …

The view from the center of a cypress dome should be a verdant green.

Not this year, at least for this dome.

The reason?

Three springs ago, during a deep drought, a wildfire sped through the dome when it didn’t have its shield of a protective moat.

But don’t cry for this cypress dome.

It’s already growing back.

Dead timber on top, at the base new cypress are coppicing out.

It won’t happen overnight, but my guess is that in ten year’s it will start looking a lot like its old self.
