The significance of forest fire monitoring was determined by the importance of forest resource and the destructive of forest fire. In the paper, according to the limitation of traditional forest fire monitoring schemes, a new wireless network implementation scheme oriented to forest fire monitoring was presented based on GPRS communication technology and ZigBee technology. The related hardware schemes and software program flows were given. The forest environmental information was collected by ZigBee network and transmitted to FTP server with public network IP on the internet through GPRS network by GPRS module which was controlled by coordinator node. The monitoring center got the data, which was provided for relative experts and decision maker, from FTP server to implement the achievement of remote data from monitoring region. Through the analysis of historical data and real-time data, correct judges and decisions were made. It had strategic significance to improve the level of modernization of forest fire monitoring.
