Actually, trees have been dynamited to fight forest fires. Buildings were dynamited to fight the fires started during the San Francisco earthquake of 1906. So if you have a gun big enough you could shoot down the trees and create a firebreak. The problem is that wildfires aren't just in forests, but grasslands and scrub brush as well. Shooting a sagebrush is kinda futile.
