The Bristlecone Pine (pinus longaeva) can live as long as 4,000 years.  This one stands atop Clayton Peak, UT.

The Mission

Terra Fuego implements landscape level restoration, conservation, and risk reduction to improve the health of forest ecosystems, and to improve the well-being of residents in the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) and rural communities.   Through job development training we also help residents from Northern California gain meaningful experience while these workers prepare for prescribed burns and reduce fuels for homeowners throughout the region.  Terra Fuego supports projects on federal and private land to create the resources land managers need to achieve their ecological and fire prevention goals.

A Tempered Vision

Through our efforts we see a future where rural communities and public lands are resilient to the changing climate and massive wildfires.  By investing in training for increased burning capacity, and the judicial application fire, we temper our watersheds and improve the ecological health of the landscape.  These practices are adopted by rural communities, creating cooperative burning programs to create expanding programs that inform, train, and protect communities at risk.
