What is Defensible Space?

Defensible space is not just a buzzword; it’s a critical aspect of wildfire prevention. Essentially, it involves creating a safe zone around your property by strategically managing vegetation, including trees. This clear zone acts as a barrier, reducing the risk of a wildfire reaching your home and providing a safer environment for firefighters to operate.

In practical terms, defensible space includes maintaining a clearance between trees and structures, removing dead or overhanging branches, and reducing the density of vegetation. Properly managed defensible space not only enhances your property’s safety but also contributes to the overall wildfire resilience of the community.
