Fire Clearing & Prevention
In Santa Cruz & Surrounding Areas
In order to keep the structures on your property safe it is recommended that you have at least 100 feet of defensible space around them. In some areas in California it’s even made into law. Defensible space is the space between a structure on your property and the surrounding wild land.
If your property is in a forested area, you run the risk of wildfire hazards. In such cases, you should take measures so that your property does not catch fire. Burning embers and small flames are the main reasons for homes to ignite in wildfire. Embers are burning pieces of airborne wood or vegetation that can be carried more than a mile by wind. These embers can cause spot fires and ignite homes, debris and other objects on your property.
That’s why the fire clearing is important, as it creates the defensible area that can slow down or entirely stop fire from reaching a structure.
Property owners need to prepare the areas around their property to minimize the likelihood of flames or surface fires touching the home or other property. Removing dead shrubs, branches and trees are just some of the things that we can do to keep your property safe.
