Wildfire Damages to Homes and Resources: Understanding Causes and Reducing Losses
Kelsi Bracmort (au)
Wildfires are getting more severe, with more acres and houses burned and more people at risk. This results from excess biomass in the forests, due to past logging and grazing and a century of fire suppression, combined with an expanding wildland-urban interface äóî more people and houses in and near the forests äóî and climate change, exacerbating drought and insect and disease problems. Some assert that current efforts to protect houses and to reduce biomass (through fuel treatments, such as thinning) are inadequate, and that public objections to some of these activities on federal lands raise costs and delay action. Others counter that proposals for federal lands allow timber harvesting with substantial environmental damage and little fire protection. Congress is addressing these issues through various legislative proposals and through funding for protection programs. Contents of this report: Background: Fires Happen; Protecting Structures from Wildfires; Protecting Wildlands and Natural Resources; Delays and Changes in Federal Decision-Making; Conclusions. Table.
