Despite what Smokey Bear has taught us, many forest fires are beneficial. Fires that burn through our forests help clear out vegetation, often burning in a mosaic pattern that sustains some of the most diverse forests in the world here in the Klamath-Siskiyou region. In many forests, however, fire suppression has altered normal fire cycles and led to a dangerous build-up of fuel.
