It’s a 50/50 cost share program. The homeowner pays 50% and the State of Wyoming will pay 50%, up to the below max amount.
90′ radius defensible space around a structure – $2,100 (max)
Forest thinning – $800/acre (max)
Fuel break – $900/acre (max)
So for instance, if a homeowner wants to thin and TigerTree charged them $1,600/acre (Hypothetical, for explanation purposes) the state would pay $800/acre.
If you are interested, call or email: 307-460-4767, email@example.com. We can send our forester out to take a look at your defensible space project.
