Wildfires Are Larger, More Destructive, and More Difficult to Fight Than Ever Before.
And there are fewer firefighters to respond to your call for help. When the fire dies, it's hard to know how to rehabilitate your property. Through our forest management services, we help you harden your home, your property, your forest, and your communities against the fires that are coming, and we help you recover from fires after the fact.
What Are Forest Management Services?
Forest management services encompass a comprehensive array of professional practices designed to ensure the sustainable utilization of forest resources while simultaneously addressing ecological, economic, and social considerations. As a variety of factors cause the recent increase in devastating wildfires, forest management services are becoming more and more essential. Professionals in this field like us engage in strategic planning and implementation of activities and techniques such as timber harvesting, silviculture, and wildlife habitat management. The overarching objective of our forest management service is to foster healthy and resilient forest ecosystems by integrating practices that support biodiversity conservation, prevent and manage wildfires, and facilitate ecological restoration when necessary.
We use a variety of well-established techniques as part of our Forest Management Service in order to prevent and combat wildfires. In many cases we literally fight fire with fire.
- Prescribed Burns: Also known as controlled burns, prescribed burns are deliberate and carefully managed fires conducted in a controlled environment under specific conditions. This forestry and land management practice is employed to achieve various objectives, including reducing the risk of uncontrolled wildfires, promoting ecosystem health, and maintaining biodiversity.
- Forest Thinning: A silvicultural practice involving the selective removal of a portion of trees in a forest stand to improve overall forest health and promote sustainable growth. This strategic removal of trees reduces competition for resources such as sunlight, water, and nutrients, allowing the remaining trees to thrive and reducing the risk of wildfires. Thinning enhances forest resilience by creating a more open and diverse canopy, promoting the development of strong, healthy trees. It also contributes to the prevention of pest and disease outbreaks and fosters habitat conditions conducive to a variety of plant and animal species.
Forest Management Services: Preparing for and Recovering from Wildfires
Wildfires are becoming more prominent, destructive, and brutal to fight than ever before.

Additionally, these services can assist in recovering from wildland fires after they’re out.
