Firewise Landscaping


Every year, many homes in the Great Lakes region are damaged or destroyed by wildfire, yet nearly all of these homes could have been saved if owners had followed a few simple rules.

This guide is designed to provide homeowners with the information they need to protect their homes from wildfires through appropriate landscaping techniques. The guide also includes information on what and where the risks from wildfires are, and how individual homeowners can manage their property to minimize the risk of wildfire damage (12 pages; 2009).
