Abstract

Wildland-Urban Interfaces are in high risk of wildfires. Defensible spaces and home ignition zones are two main aspects to protect lives and livelihoods of W-UI in the United States, Canada and Australia. Different part of the world has different rules and regulations for W-UI land management. We have discussed the defensible spaces in fire-prone areas, and current ignition zone distances with the fire resistance plant species to save lives and assets in the prominent fire-prone zones (United States, Canada and Australia) of the world.
