Fire Code & Clean Up

Fire Code

Compliance, Hazardous Vegetation Removal

Every spring the fire department's vigilance concerning the hazardous vegetation in the Los Angeles area is heightened; notices are sent to homeowners warning them of their requirement to comply with fire code regulations, to to reduce fuel load reduction, and to expect inspections to begin around the first of May or June, depending upon the city.

We clear hillsides of hazardous vegetation and have done so for many years. We are familiar with many of the fire departments and inspectors personally and keep up to date on the changes in the fire department's, California Fair Plan, and private insurance company's' requirements in each area, especially in the areas designated Very High Fire Hazard Severity Zones (VHFHS Zone).
Some requirements are:
  • Sumac removal and specimen trimming
  • 100-foot clearance around structures, and after that to 200 feet -- either fuel load reduction or clearance
  • All according to that city's fire department regulations
"If possible, remove or thin out the 'gasoline' natives: California buckwheat, laurel sumac, sugar bush, chamise (also called greasewood) and California sagebrush. These plants contain lots of fine dry dead leaves and litter and have very oily stems and leaves." Sunset Magazine, "Protecting Your Home Against Brushfire".

Clean Up

General clean-up occurs at all sites. In addition, at all our worksites we do excellent clean up with blowers, rakes, and chipper trucks. We haul away all our cuttings.
Wood Chips
Sometimes a customer will ask for the chips for mulching and we can accommodate that also.


Let our green thumbs do the work. Whether you’re planting or removing, we’re here to help.
