Borderline Apocalyptic – 📽 by Unknown

When not a threat to human life, wildfires are a beneficial natural process, resetting the natural landscape in a myriad of ways

Many forests cannot sustain themselves without natural wildfire. These forests require canopy fires to regenerate because the trees in the forest are adapted to only produce seeds following a major fire event. Hence, fires can be regenerative for the forest, and without them many of these forest types would decline on the landscape.

They also revitalize the watershed, renew the soil, and reset the clock for the ecosystem.
