Preventative Methods and Tools

  • Pruning and Thinning: Proper pruning and thinning of trees and shrubs help reduce fuel loads and create defensible space around structures.
  • Brush Clearing: Clearing away brush and dead vegetation eliminates potential fuel sources and creates firebreaks to prevent the spread of wildfire
  • Vegetation Removal: Removing highly flammable vegetation, such as invasive species or dead trees, helps minimize fire risk and improves overall property safety.
  • Mulching and Weed Abatement: Applying mulch and implementing weed abatement measures help reduce fuel accumulation and promote healthy vegetation growth.
  • Prescribed Burns: Controlled burns conducted under optimal conditions reduce fuel loads, stimulate native plant growth, and prevent the buildup of combustible materials.

We employ a variety of preventative methods and tools to reduce the risk of wildfires and protect your property:

Creating Defensible Space

Creating defensible space around your property is essential for wildfire protection. We work with you to create a defensible space plan tailored to your specific needs and property layout. This includes:

  • Zone 1 (Immediate Area): Clearing vegetation and debris within 30 feet of structures to create a buffer zone that reduces the risk of ignition from embers and radiant heat.
  • Zone 2 (Intermediate Area): Thinning and pruning vegetation within 100 feet of structures to reduce the likelihood of fire spread and minimize the intensity of flames.
  • Zone 3 (Extended Area): Implementing fuel reduction measures, such as prescribed burns or brush clearing, within 100-200 feet of structures to create additional protection against wildfire encroachment.
