Description
 
In the Pacific NW, fires are a natural part of the landscape. Homeowners must take precautions to protect their lives, homes, & property. One way to do this is to create a defensible space (DS) around your home. This is the area between your home or other structures, where potential fuel (materials or vegetation) have been modified, reduced, or cleared to create a barrier & slow the spread of fire toward your home. A DS also allows room for firefighters to fight the fire safely. This report describes how to protect your family & home with fire-resistant plants. Contents: selecting fire-resistant plants; decorative bark mulch; hardiness zones; groundcovers; perennials; shrubs -- broadleaf evergreen, & deciduous; trees -- conifer, & deciduous; & plant avail. Color ill.
