After the Fires

Articles: After the Fires

Fire is powerful, consuming, and terrifying—quite literally, a force of nature.

The devastating fires in 2017 were a wake-up call to assess vulnerable landscapes and do what we can to fireproof our gardens, and in turn provide a measure of protection to homes and property. Here at Pacific Horticulture, we’ve compiled a roundup of digital resources for gardeners facing recovery as well as anyone interested in creating a resilient, fire-safe landscape in a dry region. From design consultation to learning opportunities, the horticultural community is responding to tragic loss with practical and creative ideas.
