Threat from wildfire can be greatly minimized through proactive efforts that reduce and slow spread through use of green strips or fuel breaks, and decrease fire volatility by reducing fuel load. This results in greater safety to fire fighters and protection to key urban interface areas or wildlife habitat. The fight against western wildfire is typically reactive as suppression, with splintered efforts toward vegetation management. Annual grass management is often over looked in prescriptions…
