THE STATE HAS EXPERIENCED SOME OF THE DEADLIEST AND MOST DESTRUCTIVE WILDFIRES IN ITS HISTORY IN RECENT YEARS. SEVERAL FACTORS CONTRIBUTE TO INCREASING WILDFIRE RISKS, INCLUDING INCREASED DEVELOPMENT IN FIRE‑PRONE AREAS, UNHEALTHY FORESTLANDS, CLIMATE CHANGE, AND THE ROLE OF UTILITY INFRASTRUCTURE MANAGEMENT.
Much of the state’s forestlands are unhealthy, which means they tend to be dense with small trees and brush. This serves as “ladder fuels” to carry wildfires into tree canopies, increasing their spread. Due to drought, heat, and former fires most forestlands are dead, dying and diseased causing an ample fuel supply for fires.
Climate scientists project that climate change will contribute to hotter weather and longer dry seasons in California than was previously typical. These extremely dry conditions in combination with high winds can result in embers from a wildfire being blown miles away from the main fire. Ultimately extending and increasing the length and severity of fire season.
WUI is the intersection of developed areas and the wildlands. Continued development in the WUI means that more people and property are located in areas prone to wildfires. Average rate of development is 11%/year and growing. (2.6 m to 2.9m in 2020)
