The purpose of this site is to provide Shasta County and the City of Redding residents who will be installing landscaping and vegetation on their properties after a fire.
When landscaping around a home, most homeowners are interested in creating a landscape that is aesthetically pleasing, complements their home, and has variations in color, texture flowers, and foliage. When selecting plants, you should also consider the flammability of plants (i.e., fuel), particularly if your home is adjacent to a forest or rangeland. This document provides homeowners information on selecting plants that may reduce risk from wildfire.
Shasta County and the City of Redding are receiving a high number of questions. We are working around the clock to respond to questions and get services back to normal. During this time we appreciate your patience and understanding if your questions are not immediately answered.
