Carr Fire Homeowner Recovery Forestry Project

Jul 31, 2020
Bethel Global Response

The devastation to the physical land surrounding the Redding area was enormous in the wake of the Carr Fire. There were hundreds of uninsured or underinsured homeowners who lost their homes in the fire leaving many people with doubts about the possibility of rebuilding. A portion of that cost involves the removal of the damaged and burnt vegetation surrounding their home build site, required by law for safety reasons. This cost can range from $8,000-$100,000 depending on the property without many options available. BGR created a program to help with this largely unmet need in our community after disaster struck. Finishing on schedule, BGR has completed every request by Carr Fire homeowners, almost 140 in total, clearing the defensible space around their build site resulting in over $4.5 million dollars of in kind value going directly to our recovering neighbors for free.
