    They burn off large amounts of carbon stored in the soil, and change the ability of soil to absorb and retain water. Burning can add charcoal to the soil, and may result in a short pulse of nutrients in the ash. Burning off the dead plant life, or weedy plants, increases sunlight to the forest floor. Fkn idiots
