Burned Oaks: Which Ones Will Survive?
Wildfire in an oak woodland can kill some trees outright and leave others with burn damage that may or may not eventually kill them, too. Here is a quick method for assessing the extent of burn damage and the likelihood that an affected tree will survive.
Forest Stewardship Series 15: Wildfire and Fuel Management
This unit focuses on understanding the role of fire in forest ecology, what constitutes a fire hazard, and how to modify fuel to reduce fire hazard.
Home Landscaping for Fire
Incorporating fire safe concepts into your landscape is one of the most important ways you can help your home survive a wildfire. You can have both a beautiful landscape and a fire safe home when you establish and maintain a "defensible space."
Home Survival in Wildfire-Prone Areas: Building Materials and Design . . .
It's like the three little pigs showed us: The way you build your house can make the difference between a cozy home and a heap of rubble when disaster strikes. Learn about design methods and building materials that will help your home survive a wildfire.
Invasive Plants and Wildfires in Southern California
Native plants of California's chaparral are adapted to natural wildfire, re-establishing within a few years after a fire. Non-native plants can upset this balance and allow wildfires to recur too soon. Learn to recognize and control these problem plants.
Managing Small Ruminant Nutrition in Chaparral
Chaparral is a fire-prone shrubland plant community that grows across roughly 7 million acres of coastal and inland California. Land managers are turning to targeted grazing of sheep and goats on chaparral to reduce fire risk.
Mass Tree Mortality, Fuels, and Fire: A Guide for Sierra Nevada Forest Owners
This guide summarizes current research on the links among tree mortality, fuels, and fire risk and identifies resources that can help landowners and managers take appropriate action to manage fuels.
Planning and Permitting Forest Fuel-Reduction Projects on Private Lands in CA
This publication presents some key considerations into selecting the appropriate permit to facilitate fuel-reduction projects on private lands—and offers some insights into permitting larger fuel projects that involve multiple owners or multiple funding sources.
Preparing for Disaster: Establishing an Ag Pass Program in Your Community
Similar to a Press Pass, a county based "Ag Pass" is designed to allow farmers and ranchers special access to their lands during natural disasters. This publication outlines a blueprint for establishing such a program, before disaster strikes.
Recovering from Wildfire: A Guide for California's Forest Landowners
The disaster so many forest landowners fear has finally happened to you: wildfire. After the fire is out, it is time to assess the impact of the fire and make some decisions.
Reducing the Vulnerability of Buildings to Wildfire: Vegetation & Landscaping
What can Californians do to improve the chances that their homes will survive a wildfire? The first step is to understand the three types of exposures that can threaten a home during a wildfire so that actions specific to the context of an individual’s home and landscape can be prioritized.
