If you live in a forest or wildland area, you can face the real danger of wildfire. Wildfires destroy thousands of homes and devastate hundreds of thousands of acres of woodland every year. Protecting your home from a future wildfire is your responsibility to reduce future hazards on your property. To reduce the risk, you will need to consider the fire resistance of your home, the topography of your property, and the nature of the vegetation. Recognizing that you may have a high-risk wildfire risk is the first step in preventing fire hazards. 

Whether you own a few acres or thousands, we have put together a list of ways that will help you reduce the potential for wildfire damage on your property while improving overall forest health and wildlife habitat. Although these actions won’t prevent a wildfire from happening on your property, they can make your land more fire-resistant.

If your yard is prone to flooding after a heavy or moderate rain, your backyard may require professional help. Here is a list of six reasons why you have flooding issues in your yard.
