Wildfire Rehabilitation & Restoration

Post-wildfire rehabilitation is the application of procedures and techniques aimed at stabilizing soils and aiding the return of normal hydrologic and biologic functions on a site after wildfire. Fire is a natural process in many of Nevada’s ecosystems and is necessary to maintain diversity of wildlife and plant species. Rehabilitation is necessary when certain circumstances threaten human life, property or ecosystem sustainability.
