Wildland Fire Abatement
There are a number of fancy terms for wildland fire abatement for Vancouver, WA, but they all pretty much describe the same thing – the act of burning off weeds and ground fuel such as dry needles and small brush.
The use of controlled or prescribed burning is an effective tool in forestry as well as agriculture as it removes potential fire hazards from homes, healthy trees and other structures.
The certified arborists at AK Timber Services are skilled at protecting your property from a wildfire through the use of a controlled burn.
This Is More Than A Grass Fire
Even if you don’t have a huge yard, take a look at the ground around and below the trees on your property and neighborhood. Yards with trees that produce high volumes of needles and small stick branches may become fire hazards during a long, hot dry spell.
It’s for this reason that hazard reduction burning has become a popular method to remove the potential for a serious fire. AK Timber Services can provide you with a free estimate on wildland fire abatement in response to just a phone call at (360) 635-1076 or an e-mail sent today.
If you own a large acreage, you will be familiar with field burning used in farming. While it is inexpensive and effective, it works by clearing fields of grasses and weeds as part of the process in preparing for new planting.
Controlled burning is also an essential step in the tree growth cycle for certain species. For example, the process promotes germination as some tree cones require high heat to open and spread seeds.
