Less than 10% of the fires in our national fires are started by humans, forest fires are a natural part of the life cycle of a forest and so is the debris left behind after the fire occurs. The fire removes underbrush, dead trees and promulgates new growth. Some plants only release seeds as result of fire. Carbon resulting from the fire enriches the soil. Fire makes the forest in many ways healthier. Cleaning up the forest after a fire may be a way that some see as making the forested lands static and unchanging but forest do change over time. The suggestion of cleaning up after a fire also smacks of this Administrations way of opening our national parks to logging and I've seen that. Industrial logging is decimation on a level that fires don't approach. Fire is a renewable event and occurs in nature without humans. Logging is a scar that we leave behind that take a decade or more for the land to recover. If we want quick recovery leave the forest alone they'll fix themselves without the erosion and human destruction.
