El Dorado County Vegetation Management

Fire season is now a year-round reality in El Dorado County and its surrounding areas. The Caldor Fire is but the latest example of the devastation from a wildfire out of control. Did you know:

  • 15 of the largest 20 fires in California history have happened since 2000.
  • Since 2007, El Dorado County has seen major fires that have destroyed structures, including the Caldor, Angora, and King fires, not to mention numerous small wildfires in communities throughout the County.

With the surge in fire activity, we know we need to increase prevention measures that could help decrease fire danger in El Dorado County communities.

This website provides the latest on the County's efforts to help keep its residents prepared and safe for wildfires and links to other organizations that focus on wildfire prevention and preparedness.
