Welcome to Peak Forestry. We are a member-based connective network service developed by fire and forestry experts.

Professional. Experienced. Accredited. Knowledgeable. 

As a forestry and fire protection industry professional, the founder of Peak Forestry discovered through experience that there's a need for connective networking services between firefighters, firefighting companies, insurance companies, and landowners. At Peak Forestry, we are addressing that need and bridging the gap in fire and forestry service networking. This helps keep firefighters employed, while addressing a growing threat from urbanization into the fire-starved, densely over-grown forest ecosystem. Here our mission is to locate and facilitate the networking connections between members and opportunities, allowing us to help firefighters sustain off-season employment while reducing wildfire fire threats facing our communities and lands.

For prospective and experienced firefighters we offer company job placement services, certification/training, and off-season job opportunities. Click the red 'Firefighter' link to find out more information on training or employment opportunities.

 

For firefighting companies we offer certification and training services, intra-company staffing solutions between other companies, and firefighter locating, training, and hiring services (background checks, reference checks, records verification, 1 on 1 interviews by a panel of SRB qualified professionals, third-party clinical pre-employment drug screening, etc.) using direct advertising and thorough vetting of applicants by veteran members within the industry. To use these networking services you have to apply to become a registered member of our network. We have to verify that you are authorized to be representing a legitimate firefighting company. Click on the blue 'Members' link for more information.

 

For insurance companies and landowners with fire service needs, we offer a variety of services. We offer direct protection of private lands under contract with insurance companies when needed for direct fire protection. A contract can be developed in a matter of hours and becomes a legally binding agreement for a fire engine or crew to safely protect a specific piece of land or structure(s) in a timely manner.

 

Another service for insurance companies and landowners we also offer is off-season private land fuels reduction and mitigation labor services, where we can significantly reduce the threat of structural and/or agricultural losses from a future wildfire event.

An even more basic, and less expensive but highly valuable service we offer is assessment and consultation services based on science and performed by individuals with decades of fire experience and college degrees in forestry technology and wildland fire science. We offer comprehensive fire threat assessment and fuels mitigation consultation with planning services using computer fire behavior modeling, live and dead fuels loading plot assessments and data collection, climatological and topographical influences, entomological and pathological factors influencing fire threat, aerial survey using 1080 HD drone technology, fire history, and more.

 

We even have prescriptions that can be planned for the purpose of safely restoring fire to certain lands without risk of severe tree mortality or loss of containment. This is fact based science and is very important to the biological stability of an ecosystem that depends on periodical fire. We live in a fire adapted ecosystem, and because of that, we now understand just how vital fire application is to the ecological health, and ironically, for the fire safety of our lands.

Firefighter Toolbox

"In a globalized world, one application can spread like wildfire and there's only one winning company, which means you have to invest more than you've ever had."

-Douglas Leone
 

"It is known that wildfires behave unpredictably - this is fundamental - but it is my experience that humans in the presence of wildfire are also likely to behave in aberrant and unpredictable ways."

-Michael Leunig
 

"Ultimately, leadership is not about glorious crowning acts. It's about keeping your team focused on a goal and motivated to do their best to achieve it, especially when the stakes are high and the consequences really matter. It is about laying the groundwork for others' success, and then standing back and letting them shine."

-Chris Hadfield

"Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other."

-John F. Kennedy

"Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren't used to an environment where excellence is expected."

-Steve Jobs

"A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus."

-Martin Luther King, Jr.
