Wildland Fire Abatement Services in Vancouver, WA
Wildland fire abatement services are essential to most residents of Washington state. It may not be a service you immediately think that you need. However, it is extremely important to assess your property and think about how fire could affect you. It is particularly important after the recent devastating wildfires that have impacted our area.
At Frontier Tree Service, our skilled staff provides assessments of your home and property. During our evaluation of your landscape, we first identify fire hazards. After that, we make recommendations for how to keep your home and land as safe as possible.
As you walk around your home, do you see dead branches on trees or tree debris littering the ground? Is there weedy grass growing around your property? Have pine needles and other leaves fallen close to wood siding on your home? Do you have any dead shrubs next to your house? If you answer ‘yes’ to any of these questions, your home could be at risk for wildfire damage or destruction.
It is usually small embers that can catch on these hazards and ignite your home. Removing them can go a long way towards protecting your property and providing defensible space from fire.
