Forest Fuel Reduction

Across the state, DNR works to reduce the threat of catastrophic wildfires in high-risk communities. Coordinated fuel reduction projects target private and non-federal government forestlands in the wildland-urban interface. 
The Forest Stewardship Program helps you assess forest conditions and health, identify potential problems, pinpoint opportunities, and recommend management practices to help achieve your objectives, such as reducing the threat of wildfire. 
The Forest Health Program provides knowledge and tree or forest health technical assistance. 
These efforts are made possible through federally funded grants, such as the National Fire Plan, which provide jobs in many rural communities while achieving high priority fire prevention activities.
