@Louhikaarme It also depends on the types of trees too. They just did a study to see how much deciduous growth in a forest would lessen the impact of a forest fire, and it looked like it made a pretty big impact(can't find the study right now, but believe it was from northern Alberta). However, the deciduous trees aren't as valuable, so they tend to spray herbicide to kill them off (BC in Canada has basically made it illegal to even let any deciduous trees grow in a replanted forest, so they keep getting worse and worse forest fires there).
