Skin In The Game - Celebrating 30+ Years of Specialized Experience!


Our Story

Soon after his military tour, HFM owner Jon Frisch began working our National Forest's on Inter-agency Hot Shot Crews (IHC), prior to his Smokejumper selection.  Jon's backdrop in forestry, fuels management, perpetuity logging, arboriculture and advanced fire behavior will help you choose the right service or training package, that best suits your needs.

 There's a new paradigm shift in the way we choose to confront wildfire.

Fuels Reduction does not have to be overwhelming...we can help!


More About Stewardship - Less About Sponsorship

Because we choose to live amidst excessive fuel loading and drought (i.e. proliferation of tree disease, insect infestation and climate change), it's more important than ever to employ asymmetrical problem solving.  Critical knowledge that can only be gained through actual - skilled experience.  HFM helps clients choose the best course of action for their home, property, and budget.  An authentic approach in today's climate crisis.        


HFM bridges gaps between local hearsay, amateur guidance, and trendy protocols.  We explain forestry and how it relates to wildland fire - your property - your goals.


What About Our Cost And Availability?

Not every client is local or interested in the long story.  We get it.  You want a legitimate proposal, proof of insurance and the soonest start date available.  Our cost depends on your goals.  Some clients just want the problem to go away, while others are willing to perform the work themselves.  Contact us for a professional estimate and/ or consultation today.


Either way, our training and/ or service plans help clients build landscape resiliency.

Homeowners Insurance Concerns


Need Help With Insurance Mandates? 

In today's market, buying a new home in the wildland-urban interface (WUI) can be challenging.  Mortgage applications will require new owners to carry insurance while existing owners are dropped for living in fire prone locations.  In many cases, insurance companies are accessing the likelihood of their clients (and their neighbors) home becoming destroyed in the event of wildfire.  We understand Colorado State Forest Service (CSFS) fire mitigation protocols, as they relate to your insurance carriers concerns.

What Our Clients Are Sharing 

Providing fuels mitigation services is not as easy as one would think.  Once we (or anyone) begin removing trees, operations can take on a whole new meaning.  Most of us have an affinity for trees, and are use to protecting our old growth timber, while reveling through our National Parks.


Trees provide shade, privacy, and the esthetics we all come to know and love.  But fire mitigation is not landscaping.  The proper dialogue must be created for us to provide value, while ensuring clients are satisfied with their investment.  Trust is literally everything is this line of work.

Are You On The Fence About Fire Mitigating Your Property?

We recommend watching Bring Your Own Brigade.  Two time Oscar-nominated film director (Lucy Walker) does a fabulous job at capturing the essence of living in the Wildland-urban interface (WUI). 


Pay close attention to 01:31:30 movie timeline, as this is where Paradise California residents, and their county BOD, vote on fire/ landscape resiliency measures that will address robust WUI standards.  Behaviorally, this particular section of the documentary film is fascinating!
