Fire Wise_Defensible Space...Big Business? or What?

Is Your Home Fire Wise?

So goes the message. I am getting more involved with Defensible Space as a forester than I ever expected. Thanks to a special colleague of mine, a mentor, I have been part of this exciting field of forest management that is ever increasing. It is great for the homeowner (Defensible Space around your property) and it is an eye opener for the need to manage our woodlands BEFORE they turn into a bone yard of sticks. As I have said many times before, it is easier to get the money to "fight" the fires, than it is to "manage" the forests. This is backwards and irresponsible.
Get Involved...demand PROACTIVE forest management, not REACTIVE forest "nonmanagement".
