Wildfire Mitigation - Removal of the fuel that leads to wildfire and forest fire.  Too often a good idea that will have to wait for "next year".  Don't be caught waiting for "next year" when your site finds itself on the front line.

Forest tree stands need management, it is just that simple.  Fire is Mother Natures method and is very non-selective and harsh.  Selective thinning, pruning and under-fuel mitigation are better methods.  Call today, next year may be too late, it is never to early for a good idea. 

 Opening up building sites, driveways, and views lines.  All are within reach, simply give us a call.

This video showcases a project 24-months later.  The benefits speak for themselves.

   

Project Scope: Thinning of tree population to 25’ spacing, up-limb leave trees to 15’ heights, masticate all undergrowth >2” and broadcast a low-grow fine fescue 5-way seed mix and 2# of 14-14-14 starter fertilizer for slope stabilization.

The greatest benefit of Forestry Mulching (Forestry Mastication) is that you are leaving the biomass on property improving the soil organic matter. No slash piles or burn pits involved in this process. Approved and often used by the National Forest Service & BLM Managers.

No matter what side of the deal you find yourself, or even if there is no deal in the works.  The advantage of mapping your property will be worth a thousand words …. a picture can close the deal or just be filed for future use.
