Firewise Landscaping to Protect you Home

 

Attractive and practical landscaping plants that will help to protect your home from wildfire will be introduced to homeowners. Your home is a haven for you. Simple alternative plants that are less flammable than standard landscape plants will be illustrated and discussed. General Principals of fire resistance in plants will be taught so each home owner can make individual choices with good rational and individual tastes. Inexpensive alternatives, such as changing the type of mulch one uses in your current landscape, the wise use of hard-scapes, and good maintenance of landscapes to decrease the fire hazard will be introduced to the public.

 

Dr. Roger Rosentreter, PhD, is a botanist who has seen and studied fire across the west. After nearly 35 years with the Bureau of Land Management, he knows both the predictability and surprises of wildfires. Based in Boise, Idaho, he has tapped into the real world experiences of fire fighters and forest managers to assemble data on flammable plants. From that effort, he helps homeowners, communities, and firefighters make smart landscaping choices for fire-prone areas. He earned his PhD in botany from the University of Montana in 1984.
