Throughout the times, people in every culture keep trying to prevent forest fires because fires threaten the nearby villages, burn plants and many forest dwellers like poor koalas. But are there advantages of a forest fire? since everything has two sides, there is no exception of forest fires. As long as the forest fire is under close management by human, it contributes to us as well. Ashes of dead trees and bodies of animals provide nutrients to the soil. The forest itself needs recycle, too.

Yes ,i agree you very much.Though there are many disadventidies of the forest fire,there are also many advantages and which is more than the disadvantages maybe in some terms.The ash made by the fired wood is very rich and fertility,and it's good for the growth of the new trees.

yes there are advantages of fires. if they are conrtolled, so the mess of what happened in victoria early this yr would not have been any where near as bad. if they were allowed to do controlled burn offs. it help re-generate life in the forest, so new things have a chance to grow. if the greenie's would see it in a useful way. some things they do are good but others leave a bit to be desired. i heard the other yr when the fires were up near canberra, they could have been stopped but the way the law is. on blocking tracks, through the bush they had to get permission to move logs etc. that took to long and look what happened.
