Does the US or Canada have more forest fires in a year?

    Canada averages around 9,000 forest fires a year.  Though numbers can differ from one year to the next, typically 25,000 square kilometres are destroyed.  (US averages about 900 forest fires a year.)

    Fire is a natural process, but in the U.S., we have a dense population of people and need to suppress fires. This results in a build up of underbrush and results in fewer fires that are more intense when they occur.
