Hazardous Trees and Vegetation Removal
In the Burbank, CA, and surrounding areas, the fire department emphasizes the importance of complying with fire code regulations and reducing fuel load to prevent hazards. Non-compliance may result in severe fines.
Expert Hazardous Vegetation Clearing
At Rock’s Tree and Hillside Service, we specialize in clearing hazardous vegetation from hillsides. With years of experience, we closely collaborate with fire departments and inspectors to stay updated on changing requirements, especially in Very High Fire Hazard Severity Zones (VHFHS Zone)
Requirements for Hazardous Vegetation Removal
Our services include sumac removal, specimen trimming, and ensuring a 100-foot clearance around structures. For enhanced safety, we extend clearance to 200 feet, either through fuel load reduction or clearance, in accordance with city fire department regulations.
Thorough Clean-Up and 'Gasoline' Natives Removal
We prioritize site cleanliness and utilize blowers, rakes, and chipper trucks for general clean-up. Additionally, we haul away all cuttings from every worksite. To mitigate fire risks, we recommend removing or thinning out “gasoline” natives such as California Buckwheat, Laurel Sumac, Sugar Bush, Chamise (also called Greasewood), and California Sagebrush, which have dry leaves and oily stems and leaves.
Clearing hazardous vegetation reduces fire risks, ensures compliance with fire code regulations, and helps protect your property from potential damage.
