Today, the Brunswick (ME) Fire Department carried out a controlled burn of a blueberry barren at Crystal Spring Farm, which is a signature holding of the Brunswick Topsham Land Trust. Before intensive human settlement, blueberry barrens burned frequently from natural causes. Today, they are often maintained by controlled burns every few years.
