When it comes to protecting your home or vacation property from the dangers of wildfires, one of the most influential, proactive steps you can take is to remove potential fuel sources from around your property. This means removing trees, shrubs, and other vegetation that could act as kindling for a fire.
At Bear Claw Land Services, we specialize in providing safe and effective wildfire mitigation services based on Firewise best practices, a National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) initiative to reduce the risk of home destruction and wildfire spread in the U.S.
We have the knowledge, experience, and equipment to quickly and efficiently clear your property of hazardous vegetation and trees. In addition, we can provide valuable advice on how to cultivate a defensible space around your property, including what types of plants may be more fire-resistant than others.
Research on wildfires over the last few decades has pinpointed traveling embers and small flames as the primary path through which most homes ignite during wildfires. Embers are burning pieces of airborne wood or debris that can be carried by fire-fueled winds, causing spot fires and igniting structures, debris, and vegetation even miles away from an active fire.
Despite the unpredictable nature of wildfires, homeowners and business owners can take proven steps to fight ignitions, minimize the likelihood of fire on the property, and significantly reduce the risk of home destruction.
Homes tend to burn as a result of the condition of the property, trees, and vegetation in the 200 feet around the structure or structures. This is called the Home Ignition Zone (HIZ).
Bear Claw Land Services specializes in enhancing the safety of your Home Ignition Zone and broader property by removing dangerous trees, removing dead and standing logs, pruning crowns, and more.
We have become a go-to contractor for HOAs across the Grand County region, helping to guide property owners through proper fire mitigation strategies and giving you peace of mind that your home is prepared for the worst.
