Firewise Landscaping for Utah
Utah State University Extension
Wildland fires affect many communities in Utah and the Intermountain West each year. The effects of these fires potentially become more serious as communities extend near and into former wildlands. This booklet is a guide for homeowners and others concerned with management of the wildland-urban interface. Following the advice in this booklet will help you reduce the fire hazard around your home. There are no guarantees that a home will be fireproof, but if you take action to be firewise, you can greatly increase the chances that your home will withstand a wildfire.
