Some species even require forest fires every year or at least every few years to survive.

Building houses in the forest that previously had forest fires at least once or twice a decade is asking for trouble. Building houses on a floodplain and then people complain about being flooded at least once a decade. Cutting down the forests in the mountains and then complain about floods downstream... It is nice if you can blame "climate change" instead of your own stupidity :-)
