Tiny Town Timber & Tree Service
Fuel Reduction or fire clearance is when you remove the fuels around your home or business by creating a defensible space. This helps to minimize the threat and impact that a fire poses. If a wildfire approaches your home or commercial property it will be less likely to spread to the structure and makes it easier for firefighters by creating a defensible space. This crucial space allows firefighters to help defend your structures in the case of a fire. A per clearance to 100 feet dramatically increases the chance of your home or business surviving a wildfire. This defensible space also provides the needed space for firefighter safety when protecting homes during a forest or wildland fire.
