What should you do with your land after a wildfire?
The CNPS Fire Recovery Guide addresses that question in an easy-to-use booklet. Created in response to the Wine Country fires of 2017, the Guide is now updated to cover eleven California habitats commonly affected by fire. The Guide is a collaborative effort between CNPS, dozens of partner organizations, and some of the best fire experts in the state. Sections include:
- Frequently Asked Questions
- Soil Erosion Control
- Care and Recovery of Trees
- Seeding vs. Natural Regeneration
- Defensible Space and Landscaping
- A Post-Fire Checklist for Land Care, and more
The “new normal” of intense fire seasons requires us to be informed and aware of how fires start, how they spread, and what to do post-fire to benefit our land and the biodiversity we steward. We offer this Guide to help all landowners who want to make their property and their communities safer and more resilient.
