The pine forest must
burn to the ground for new trees
to grow up from ash.

Nicely rendered Haiku...no need to read so deeply into its message

Indeed! Insightful and most cleverly expressed!

Technically, just dropping their seeds would not enable new trees to grow up from the ash, as there would be no ash. But let's not overanalyze, shall we?: it's a great poem.

It is too easy :)
And that way loses the meaning!
Thank you for reading!
