Urban Wilderness Forest Fires:




Why do we now pay more attention to forest fires? We pay more attention to forest fires because more and more people choose to live near or within forested areas, which are interconnected with our national lands. When fire happens, homes are put at risk and firefighters spend their time protecting people and their homes rather than controlling a fire’s progress.

There are ways to protect a wilderness Home, but when you complete the task of clearing all trees and brush within 50 feet of your house you will find your wilderness retreat is no longer in the wilderness but in a defensive fire zone liberally dotted with 150 foot diameter clear zones, about one-half acre each, with houses surrounded by dirt or gravel.
