Public Assistance with Forest Health and Wildfire Mitigation

The Town of Pinetop-Lakeside along with the University of Arizona, Navajo County Cooperative Extension offers assistance to the residents of Pinetop-Lakeside in a number of ways. Several staff members are available to confer with homeowners or homebuilders about existing homes or proposed residential structures. They are professionals with a great deal of experience in forest health, fire suppression and mitigation. If you have questions about the condition of the vegetation on your property, feel free to call to arrange a time for an appointment.

The staff is also available to meet with Home Owner Associations (HOA), or developers and contractors to assist in neighborhood plans for forest health, wildfire mitigation and Firewise recognition on a neighborhood-wide or subdivision basis. The staff works closely with the Forestry Division of the Arizona State Land Department, the U. S. Forest Service and local fire districts, and will coordinate with those groups in offering assistance.

The Town of Pinetop-Lakeside and the Cooperative Extension Office also offer forest health and fire mitigation cost share grant programs to residents and property owners. Follow the “Forest Health Grant Funds” link at Pinetop-Lakesides’ home page for information about the cost share grant program.

If you have any questions please call the Navajo County Cooperative Extension Office at (928) 524-6271.
