Watch Out For Forest Fires

By Tessa Dean February 2021

Sue and Christopher were hiking slowly through the woods and looking with disappointment at the burned husks of trees. The fire had been many years ago as there was plenty of lush green trees and bushes scattered among the burnt out areas.

When they arrived at the warden’s office there was an officer who was appointed to oversee the area and point out ways to hike safely and with caution in order to try and avoid another fire like that one.

However he also explained that wildfires are a natural part of many environments. They are nature’s way of clearing out the dead litter on forest floors allowing important nutrients to return to the soil. Fires also play an important role in the reproduction of some plants. That is why they would see so much lush overgrowth in the area where the fire had been. Nature has a way of taking care of its own.
