FIREWISE Plant Materials for 3,000 ft. and Higher Elevations

Creating defensible space around your home is one of the most important and effective steps you can take to protect you, your family, and your home from catastrophic wildfire. Defensible space is the area between a structure and an oncoming wildfire (or between a burning structure and wildland vegetation) where nearby vegetation has been modified to reduce a wildfire’s intensity and ability to spread. 

Arizona State Forestry Bulletins

Pine Needle Raking

There are two main reasons for removing pine needles and other dead vegetative materials which accumulate on the forest floor. One is to prevent the spread of a possible destructive fire; the other is to improve aesthetics, which is a matter of personal preference. Learn best practices for our urban/wildland interface.

Drones Can Endanger Firefighting Efforts

Forest Services says, Drones near wildfires are not safe. If you fly, we can't!

Flying drones or UAS (unmanned aircraft systems) within or near wildfires without permission could cause injury or death to firefighters and hamper their ability to protect lives, property, and natural cultural resources. 

Fire managers may suspend aerial firefighting until unauthorized UAS leave the area, allowing wildfire to grow larger.

Contact your nearest land management agency office to learn more abut UAS and public lands.
