After many years of fire exclusion, the U.S. Forest Service and other agencies are working to restore ecosystems with fire. Many native plants in northern Wisconsin have unique adaptations that allow them to withstand fire and even thrive after it. This in-turn allows the wildlife who depend on these plants for food and shelter to also thrive.
