Your Forest Heritage

Top of page

A challenge to all who visit or work in Canada's woodlands to preserve them from the scourge of fire. Scenes of undisturbed birds and animals suggest the beauty and serenity of the woods--until a carelessly dropped match or a half-extinguished campfire starts a holocaust of smoke and flame that leaves nothing but gaunt, charred skeletons of once-proud trees. The film urges every human precaution to prevent this recurring tragedy and shows what the Federal Forestry Branch and trained fire fighters do to safeguard this forest heritage.

1951, 22 min 13 s
