Fire Cleanup & Brush Clearing

Fire Cleanup

        Every year, California faces the threat of devastating wildfires that have the potential to claim lives, destroy property, and harm the environment. These disasters often create a significant amount of debris, which can include ash, metal, concrete, building materials, contaminated soil, and hazardous materials. Disaster debris must be removed and properly managed to reduce threats to public health and safety, protect the environment, and help communities recover and rebuild. If you do not qualify or do not wish to have your property cleaned by a government agency a general contractor will be your best bet.

Brush Clearing

1/7

        Defensible space is extremely important in protecting a home. Most of us don't have the tools, time, or energy to properly clear around our homes. Forestry Mulching is the act of turning brush and trees into forest mulch, which provides more defensible space for the home. Please contact us if you are interested in protecting your property and your neighborhood from fire by clearing brush and small trees.
