Pyrodiversion: Planning for Fire in the San Gabriel Valley
The City College of New York
Pyro-diversion: Planning for Fire in the San Gabriel Valley responds to the ecological and
anthropological needs of southern California by implementing a novel set of landscape
strategies used to slow down, but not suppress, wildfires along the foothills of the Angeles
National Forest. Vegetative and topographic treatments create a “fire-ready” landscape
designed to keep communities safe while embracing the essential ecological processes of fire
and debris flows.
