Underwriters and insurers use Wildfire 4D to analyze defensible space within the home ignition zone and accurately evaluate ground-to-canopy wildfire fuels, reducing exposure and catastrophic loss.

Teren eliminates blind spots in wildfire underwriting with a unique combination of LiDAR and data science. Our approach penetrates tree tops to accurately measure wildfire risk posed by the full spectrum of vegetative fuels within the home ignition zone.
Predict, Identify, Prioritize, and Monitor External Force Threats over Time
FUEL IS THE ONLY FACTOR WE CAN CONTROL
Manage Fuel = Reduce Risk
While home-hardening products exist, they are expensive and difficult to verify. Vegetation removal or trimming is a low-cost alternative that immediately reduces wildfire risk by 30% and can be verified via fixed-wing LiDAR without disrupting the homeowner.
