Since June 2007 an estimated 25,000 acres (10,000 hectares) of land has been destroyed in around 3,000 wildfires in Greece.

(Some of the fires are natural, due to the high temperatures, but most have been started deliberately by developers. Because there is no land registry illegal construction is rife, but there is a simple solution, I suggest the authorities contact Google Earth for some pre fire photos, then replant in all those areas that were previously forest.)
