Wildfire Protection Tips for Encanto Residents?
When you have a fire damage emergency in Encanto, our San Diego City South West team typically arrives on site within four hours of your call for help. Summer is here, and dry vegetation can ignite and spread rapidly. The San Diego County website offers information on creating defensible space around your home to protect it from wildfire damage. Clearing combustible vegetation and planting fire-resistant plants can help minimize wildfire risk.
Combustible vegetation is any material including dry grass, brush, weeds, litter, and waste that can catch fire easily in its natural state.
Combustible vegetation can only be removed by mowing, cutting, and grazing as long as the root structure is left intact. Any trees you remove shall have the stumps cut no higher than 8 inches above the ground. The only exception would be an orchard, and orchard trees may have their stumps wholly removed. However, combustible vegetation can be replaced with fire-resistant plants.
- Grow close to the ground
