What is Hazardous Fuels Reduction?

Hazardous Fuels Reduction (HFR) is often thought of as fire mitigation however it is much more than that. HFR focuses on tree removal, including but not limited to dead trees, downed or diseased trees, and trimming of trees. It also encompasses removal and/or relocation of ground fuels such as fallen piles of leaves and needles, mulch, and firewood piles.
