Abstract or Description:
Arizona’s population is growing, its urban areas and its communities in rural areas are rapidly expanding, and people are building more homes in what was once natural forest, grass and shrub lands. Thus, it is important people know how to correctly landscape their property to reduce wildfire hazards. Improper landscaping can greatly increase the risk of structure and property damage from wildfire. It is a question of when, not if, a wildfire will strike any particular area.
