Can your forested property survive a wildfire? If you’re not sure, this 41-page 2010 booklet is a definite must-read. Along with describing fire behavior, Extension foresters from the tristate region discuss fuel-reduction methods, how to create firebreaks, improve road access, rethink water sources, and more, with discussion of a case-study example from Oregon to boot. Following the guidelines in this publication will not only strengthen the long-term ecological health of your property, it will also reduce a potential fire's severity. Safeguard your trees and firefighters’ lives by ordering this publication today.
