Defensible Space

Defensible Space is your property’s front line defense against wildfire. It’s the buffer you create between a building on your property and the grass, trees, shrubs, or any wildland area that surround it. This space is needed to slow or stop the spread of wildfire and it protects your home from catching fire – either from direct flame contact or radiant heat. Creating and maintaining defensible space around your home can dramatically increase your home’s chance of surviving a wildfire and improves the safety of firefighters defending your property.

Our team of ISA Certified Arborists has a comprehensive understanding of wildfires and the best practices to slow and stop their spread. American Arborists can assist in the designing of fuel breaks and proper vegetation management surrounding your home to mitigate the risk of losing your home to a wildfire threat. Contact us today for a consultation on the fire readiness of your property.
