What would it be like if the East really experienced how apocalyptic forest fires feel?

Dave Weigel Retweeted

since i moved west/experienced fire seasons ive wondered what coverage of climate would be like if the east really experienced how apocalyptic these feel. east is not immune to disasters by any stretch but also have u seen twitter when there's a thunderstorm in nyc or snow in dc

1. I look at it this way, the West has ALWAYS had issues with fire, be like some

gulf coast people saying well, if the midwest experienced a hurricane, blah blah blah. Or you live and flood zone and you get flooded out time and time again,

Not sure what the point is.

2. New Jersey is covered with trees.

Old growth deciduous forest.

It would take generations to return to normal, if devastated by a big fire.
