Facebook: Fire can transfer from treetop to treetop. In your defensible space, separate tree canopies by at least 10 feet. The tops of mature trees should not be within 10 feet of the house. Learn more about creating defensible space and other ways to protect your family, home, and property below.

Facebook: There are no "fireproof" plants, however some are more of a fire hazard than others. Many evergreen woody plants, such as juniper, pine, and arborvitae, contain flammable chemicals that cause them to burn intensely when ignited. Instead of planting evergreens, try planting deciduous trees whose leaves fall off to reduce the wildfire risk. Learn more about preparing and protecting your property from wildfire at the link below.
