The degree of wildfire risk depends on both the probability of an ignition and the potential for damage or harm (such as loss of trees, homes, or even lives). Recognizing that you may have a high wildfire risk is the first step in doing something about it. Whether you own a few acres or thousands, this publication will help you reduce the potential for wildfire damage on your property while improving overall forest health and wildlife habitat. Although these actions won't prevent a wildfire from coming onto your property, they can make it more fire resistant. By following the guidelines in this publication you can reduce a fire's severity so that most trees survive and firefighters are better able to attack and extinguish the blaze. Authors: Max Bennett, Stephen Fitzgerald, Bob Parker, Marty Main, Andy Perleberg, Chris Schnepf, and Ron Mahoney
