Clearance Pruning… for Safety and Fire Hazard Defensible Space

Fire hazard defensible space
Since the Oakland Hills Fire in 1991, reduction pruning around homes to establish defensible space has become a requirement by local fire departments. In the years following the fire, many departments, erring on the side of caution, required extraordinary defensible space clearance. We perform EFFECTIVE fire hazard pruning without devastating your garden.

Clearance pruning
Structure damage prevention and home / neighborhood safety are the primary considerations for performing periodic clearance pruning. We clear foliage from sturctures, pathways, roadways and lighting. By making proper cuts to lateral branches, we re-direct growth, preserve maximum branch integrity and reduce the frequency of future clearance pruning procedures.
