There are many local contractors who provide services related to forestry, home construction and retrofits, landscaping, and other wildfire mitigation activities. Eagle County, the Vail Board of REALTORS®, Community Wildfire Planning Center, or any agents acting on behalf of the REALFire® program cannot endorse any contractors but provide this information as a courtesy. We encourage you to contact multiple contractors when seeking bids.
