With fire season quickly approaching, it's a good time to walk the property surrounding your house and make sure it meets the State and County Fire Hazard Ordinance requirements.
Copp Roofing & Construction, Inc. advises homeowner to have their trees thinned before installing their new roof.
Thinning densely packed trees and clearing "ladder fuels" (small trees and brush) that carry fire to the canopy, is an important responsibility for every homeowner. Taking care of your privately owned lots in the San Bernardino Mountains will contribute to the health of our forests and reduce the risk of Wildland and widespread structure fires in our mountain communities. Get the peace of mind that comes with knowing you have done everything you can to protect yourself from personal and property loss and ensure that the forests we share and enjoy today will be here for generations to come!
Forest Care is a federally-funded grant program that can reimburse you up to 75% of the cost of thinning the trees on your property. Upon request, they will send a licensed professional forester out to meet with you and provide recommendations about the trees and brush that should be removed and cleared. Call Forest Care 1-888-883-THIN today to find out how you can get started!
