The FireSmart BC Plant Program is a simple, visual way to see which plants are considered more fire-resistant at the point of purchase.
The Plant Program provides gardeners, landscapers, and suppliers with the knowledge and tools to help mitigate wildfire risks where they work and live. See the list below to find out if your local garden centre is participating.
Launched in the Spring of 2021
The Plant Program was launched in the Spring of 2021 at two Art Knapp garden centres in Kamloops and Prince George. It quickly became a success, which has led to more garden centres getting onboard.
