Re: NNNG: railroads and bar-b-ques, how are they different?

I live on rural land in Colorado. There is no requirement, or law,
I know of that requires anyone to reduce fire fuels on their property.
Am sure the Forest Service would work to reduce fire danger on
their land if only Congress & taxpayers would fund the cost.

I took advantage of a state grant for mitigating fire fuel danger
on my acreage by thinning trees and removing brush that paid
about 1/2 the cost. It is expensive and recall total costs about
$1000. per acre--14 years ago. Terrain is the biggest factor
for cost. Flat ground is the cheapest to work with because you
can use power equipment. With enough money, any forest can
be perfect just like Central Park in NYC.

Even after spending the time and money to reduce fire fuels,
most of my place burned in a wildfire and the five fire trucks at
my house could not stop it due to a windy day.

Yes, you are liable in Colorado for starting a fire that burns any
land belonging to someone else. I think the ongoing Drought in
Colorado is the biggest risk forests here now have and there
are many dead trees related to the lack of moisture and ongoing
above average temps.
