Our professional tree experts live and work in Tabernash, Colorado, and surrounding areas, so we understand the importance of forestry health & wildfire mitigation. Tabernash, Colorado and the surrounding area is plagued with dead lodgepole pines affected by the pine beetle and the forest floor is scattered with juniper bushes which create highly flammable ladder fuels during a wildfire scenario.
Homeowner communities like Winter Park Highlands are littered with dead beetle kill lodgepole pine trees and could benefit greatly from annual fire mitigation work from property owners to help keep the area safe from the threat of wildfires.
If your property is not properly mitigated, ladder fuels such as juniper bushes, dead lodgepole pines, old stumps, limbs, and brush can create wildfire hazards for you and your neighbors.
The altitude and climate of Tabernash, CO creates, give us access to a unique range of tree species. Some common trees in Tabernash, CO include the Douglas-fir, Engelmann spruce, lodgepole pine, and Rocky Mountain juniper bush.
Our community is being developed at a rate where homes are being constructed in the WUI (Wildland Urban Interface). This area is defined as areas where urbanization meets the wild forests.
If you’ve spent time in our county over recent years, you’ve likely heard of the fires like the East Troublesome Fire engulfing 100,000+ acres of forest and homes alike.
This is mainly due to the amount of “beetle kill” dead lodgepole pine that is piled up on the forest floor. When a fire ignites, this “dead fall” creates a tinder box effect and leads to engulfing fires like the East Troublesome fire.
Fires like the East Troublesome are a reminder that it is ever more important to do our part as community members in properly mitigating our properties — not only for our own families, but for our neighbors as well.
