Is Your Home Defensible to Wildfire?

HOWELL IT IS provides forest vegetation reduction planning. If you own a home within a forested urban interface it is threatened by wildfire. In some situations it is possible to maintain a forested landscape while providing adequate resistance to wildfire. Wildfire prediction computer models are good tools, but they are not to be relied upon as your best option.


Tree pruning and spacing along with annual maintenance of fallen needles and leaves works wonders. Clean your roof gutters!!

CEQA/NEPA Documents: What are they and Why Prepare Them?

HOWELL IT IS provides CEQA/NEPA reports as required by California and Federal Law. The National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) was put into effect by President Richard Nixon in 1970. Governor Ronald Reagan signed the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) soon thereafter. The objective of these laws was to eliminate significant negative environmental impact associated with human projects. NEPA targets activities of public agencies, while CEQA targets private land through the state, county and city permitting processes.
