Economical and Environmental Impact of Forest Fires....

Forest fires have a huge impact on the environment. Forest fires effect the quality of the air we breathe, destroy trees and plants, and is harmful to human life and animal life.

I live in British Columbia Canada and this year has been a long hot dry summer and more than normal forest fires have started. Some days the smoke has overshadowed the sun and nothing more than a haze. There are a few areas of the province that homes have also been burnt. The water and tardent used to put out the fires is staggering.

Forest fires have a negative impact, but it also has positive effects which are very much part of the natural ecological cycle. Certain trees and plants rely on fire to provide conditions for germination while animals such as deer and elk thrive on the vegetation that grows on burned sites.

The cost of fighting forest fires is huge, the man power needed to fight fires tremendous and the overall effect of fires takes it toll on many things. People that smoke have to be responsible with putting out their cigarettes and be careful around camp sites.

Take care of yourself and others around you

At the same time, the damage caused by a forest fire can prevent the natural process in which soil and leafage normally absorb rainfall. The disruption and imbalance of the water distribution and flow can also cause floods in areas where normally this would not occur.

These fires also create heavy smog that is harmful to human and animal life, and they use up a lot of natural resources, including water, which could lead to periods of needed water preservation in the area.
