Replanting our Nation’s Forests

The Devastation of Forest Fires

Replanting our majestic national forests

Southern California’s massive wildfires in 2003 devastated more than 800,000 acres, including a total of nearly 450,000 acres in four National Forests.

The Hayman Fire in Colorado was one of the worst wildfires of 2002, burning nearly 138,000 acres in the Pike-San Isabel National Forest in Colorado.

These are only a few examples of thousands of intense wildfires that have burned in many national forests over the past ten years.

Take a look at the causes and effects of forest fires…and the manpower and resources used in fighting them.
