Wildfires & Defensible Space

Wildfires & Defensible Space in Reno

Protect Your Property with Fuel Reduction Solutions

Wildfires pose a serious threat to home and business owners throughout Nevada. One of the most effective ways to protect your property is through the use of proper defensible space. Defensible space is a fire-resistant buffer zone between your property, including trees and other landscaping, and any wildland area surrounding it. This space is crucial in reducing the spread of wildfires and protecting your property from destruction.

At American Arborists, Ltd., we have the necessary expertise to help you create an effective defensible space in Reno or the surrounding areas. Our ISA-Certified Arborists can help you analyze your property’s wildfire risk and create a comprehensive plan to reduce wildfire fuel near your home or business. We offer defensible space creation and ongoing vegetation management specifically designed to create fuel breaks and mitigate your wildfire risk.

Advantages of Defensible Space

Creating defensible space in Reno can not only protect your home, business, or commercial property from wildfires, it can also help stop the spread of fire throughout an area.

Some of the key benefits of creating defensible space include:

  • Reduced threat of wildfire spreading to your property
  • Decreased risk of wildfire spreading throughout the area
  • Increased access to wildland areas for firefighters
  • Greater protection against direct and radiant heat
  • Reduced wildfire intensity, leading to safer communities

In northern Nevada, where wildfires are a real threat, having a defensible space around your residential or commercial property can be an effective method of reducing the amount of destruction caused by fires. Not only can it keep your own property safe, it can also help protect the properties and areas around you.

How Does Defensible Space Work?

Each property is different and therefore, defensible space solutions will differ. The right solution for you will depend on the type of property you own. For instance, if your home sits on a steep slope, you will need a greater amount of spacing between trees and shrubs than homes that sit on a level surface. Similarly, if your commercial property has a lot of large vegetation, such as older trees, you will also need more spacing between vegetation than properties with smaller trees and shrubs.

At American Arborists, we can help you find the right defensible space solution for your Reno property. We work directly with you to create a customized plan that’s tailored to your unique needs. With more than a decade of experience, our team offers superior services, dependability, and a 100% customer satisfaction guarantee.
