Protect Your Home with Defensible Space
Proper landscape vegetation management will create defensible space and reduce potential property loss. Here are a few things to create defensible space around your home.

•  Mow or weed-eat flammable vegetation, especially on steeper slopes to maintain 100 feet of defensible space around your home.

•  After trimming trees, chip the waste and spread the chips.

•  Select, arrange and maintain fire safe planting around your home.

•  Replace flammable shake shingles with Class A roofing material.
