More than a decade ago, 4,000 loblolly pines were planted in the Route 100 median in Pasadena after it was damaged during construction work on Route 10. But a four-alarm brush fire in February burned several acres and many of those trees, prompting a county legislator and some Pasadena elementary school pupils to renew efforts to replace the trees. After the fire, Del. John R. Leopold, a District 31 Republican who lobbied for the reforestation of the median 11 years ago, asked the state Department of Transportation to survey the damage and develop a plan of action.

Anne Arundel County Fire Division Chief John M. Scholz was looking at the Christmas tree in the corner. But he saw the potential for a living room campfire. "The presents act as kindling. The wood branches alternate, allowing for oxygen," Scholz said. "It's in the perfect configuration." His voice trailed off as a spark turned the blue spruce into a raging fire, filling the room with smoke as flames moved up the walls. In the safety demonstration, it took less than a minute for the fire to consume the tree.
