A forest fire is raging, the smoke and ashes released into the air. To our “civilized” minds, a fire is terrifying because it’s a threat to our homes, our towns, our animals and possibly our own lives. But forest fires are a natural part of the cycle of life, and were sometimes carefully set by indigenous people. Fire is necessary to clear away undergrowth and debris and is important to the overall health of a forest. Fires are beneficial for prairies, which may need fire to maintain their very existence, and to some species such as the Lodgepole Pine, whose cones often need exposure to high temperatures in order to release their seeds.
