Improving the health of America’s forests is critical to reducing the frequency and severity of wildfires that have devastated ecosystems across the Nation. There are ways that private woodland owners can take action towards reducing the risk of wildfire on their land. And we're here to help.

PRIVATE FOREST OWNERS CAN HELP WITH FIRE RISK REDUCTION

 

An active management approach is often key to reducing your risks and keeping the forest healthy for the long term. Private woodland owners are taking action by:

  • Thinning out trees
  • Pruning dead branches
  • Creating firebreaks
  • Doing controlled burns
  • And reducing fuels

to make the forest healthier and less likely to be severely impacted by wildfire.

 

FUNDING PROGRAMS MAY BE AVAILABLE IN YOUR REGION TO HELP PROTECT YOUR LAND AGAINST WILDFIRE.

 

There are several funding programs available to private woodland owners that can help cover the costs of having work done on their land in an effort to reduce the risk of wildfire. In some regions, our partners are offering free visits with a local forest professional to walk your land and make suggestions. To find out what's available for your forest, visit woodscamp.com/map , locate your property on the map, and answer a few quick questions about the goals for your land.
