Wildfires are bigger, burning longer, causing more damage and impacting public health more than ever. Wildfires can quickly turn into a disaster when they enter the wildland urban interface, where structures and other human development meet with undeveloped wildland or vegetation fuel.
Land trusts are in a unique position to proactively reduce the risk of WUI fires both by safeguarding wildlands from development and by applying best practices to operations and stewardship efforts.
