Defensible Space

Creating defensible space around your home is a vital step in wildfire safety. This includes removing vegetation, chipping, tree trimming or removal, vegetation disposal and other similar work. Removing and disposing of vegetation can reduce the likelihood of your house, or your neighbors house, burning down during a wildland fire.
