For the Tsasuchei, Balgazyn, Minusinsk, and Shushensk ribbon-like pine forests of southern Siberia, conditions of ignition and development of fires are analyzed and the flammability is evaluated. Fire effects on vegetation, including forest stand condition and reforestation, are evaluated. It is shown that a reduction in the area of ribbon-like pine forests of southern Siberia caused by crown fires leads to steppification of these areas.
