FIREWISE Guidelines

Firewise Landscaping for Utah 2012 (Utah State Cooperative Extension) is a comprehensive guide for site selection, building placement, landscaping, and other factors which can affect fire safety. Interlaken Town is in a critical location, with steep slopes and an abundance of fuel on the ground, making it very susceptible to wildfire hazards. Use this guide to aid your design and placement of buildings and trees, plants and other landscaping features. The study is divided into the following sections:

 

  • Property Selection and Construction

  • Firewise Landscape Design

  • Landscape Maintenance

  • Firewise Plant Selection
