Fire Upon The Horizon

Jessica Szawara

Wildfires can be disastrous and frightening as it destroys thousands of trees and cause living things to retreat from their habitats. However, wildfires are needed to regenerate and change forests into healthy ecosystems. These fires occur naturally in a cycle of 5 to 25 years. Without these natural disasters, native trees and shrubs in the area would grow excessively. Animals depend on these fires to maintain their habitats.
