Every year, forest fires rise in intensity as climate change and land management practices continue to provide the best conditions for them to do so.
We have all seen the media coverage about areas that have been severely damaged by these fires, which happen worldwide. The cause of forest fires can vary depending on location and human activity. However, these fires typically occur during dry seasons, and they tend to worsen if the rainy and snowy seasons lack precipitation or don’t last long enough.
Around the world, we are planting trees in places that have been severely affected by forest fires and would not be able to recover a healthy ecosystem on their own.
We currently have 240 active projects around the world that are helping to restore forests after forest fires. Read below to learn how planting trees can make a world of a difference.
