Use the Tools

The TCSI partners are committed to science-based land management decision-making and continuous improvement. Our research and tools underpin a shared restoration strategy across all land ownerships and can be applied across California.

The ten pillars of resilience were developed by TCSI as part of the framework for resilience to describe and measure resilience.

How to Use the Tools

We created a How-To-Guide to help new projects get started. Learn more about our tools and find the approach that’s right for you.

Partner Tools

Regional Resource Kits

The Regional Resource Kits help regional partners plan, prioritize, and monitor projects. Created by the California Wildfire and Forest Resilience Task Force.


Planscape is a wildfire resilience planning support tool that helps land managers evaluate large amounts of data to consider potential management options.
