FIRE SAFETY REGULATIONS
Trees and large shrubs often create a canopy that blocks sunlight. When this happens, sun-starved branches shrink and die. This provides fuel for fire, but can be controlled by clearing and pruning. Rodents often make their home in untrimmed trees and shrubs, and their natural nesting process creates an accumulation of flammable materials. Seasonal weeds combined with the above can also create a lot of fuel for potential fires.
We know the difference between stripping the land and the application of sound principles for safety while maintaining the value of your landscape architectural integrity. Root systems should not be disturbed. Hillsides require special skills and we pay close attention to the retention of hill holding environmentally sound procedures. This is visually more pleasing and safer once the rains come in the winter.
We are familiar with and adhere to home insurance, Fair Plan and Fire Department requirements.
