DescriptionTwenty years ago the deliberate use of fire in forest management was frowned upon by many foresters. Many heated arguments developed over it, even though ecological studies had shown that fire favored the maintenance of several valuable forest types. Today attitudes have changed: most foresters accept fire as one of their management tools - though admittedly it is dangerous and is applicable only in certain areas.
