the new york times had an interesting piece about
forest fire risk management that was printed on
sunday, august 20th. their main focus revolved around
how forestry mis-management has created an at-risk
forest community, but they also mentioned some of the
hazards/preventions for homeowners who wish to build
in the dynamic forest environment.
good luck and i hope the smoke clears soon!
