Proven Fire Prevention Practices
To protect your property from fire, the most important step is to remove brush, dead branches, or other potential fuels. Our expertise lies in expansive properties, which may require annual maintenance ahead of California’s wildfire season to ensure a safe summer and fall.
We offer state-of-the-art tree care to combat modern-day problems, like wildfires. This is a critical service for most of our clients, who live in fire-prone regions. Certain fire prevention practices, like defensible space creation, are legal requirements in the Bay Area.
Defensible Space Creation
Defensible space refers to the area kept clear of trees, brush, and other potential fuels directly around a building. This prevents the fire from spreading to the building and restricts its path.
Whether you own a home or a commercial building, it is important to work with a professional to understand the recommended guidelines for creating defensible space. Typically, the defensible space buffer should extend 100 feet, but there are stricter requirements for the space closest to the building in question.
