The Years Project: The Future of Forest Fires

Did you know wildfires now are 6x more destructive than there were 40 years ago? Leading ecologists, Tom Swetnam discusses how he uses the rings and fire scars of each tree to get both the fire history and climate history of a forest. Once Tom and his team can assess how climate affects the fire history of a forest, he can then determine how the climate will affect future fires.
