Firewise Urban Landscaping

The Guidelines for Firewise Landscaping in an Urban Setting brochure was created specifically for the residents of Ashland to create Firewise landscapes around their homes. In an urban environment, neighbors have to work together to provide the 100-200 feet of defensible space around homes that will increase home survival during a wildfire.

Home loss due to wildfire is not inevitable. Following the science-based standards in this brochure will help Ashland residents manage their home landscapes in a way that can slow down the rapid spread of fire and decrease fire intensity around homes, helping firefighters and themselves.

In an urban fire-prone environment like Ashland, landscaping and domestic vegetation can be wildfire fuels...do what you can to use fire-resistant landscaping to decrease wildfire potential in your neighborhood!
