Fire Fuels

If your landscape is plagued with low hanging limbs and heavy debris you may be at higher risk for forest fire. Low hanging limbs or tall grasses are often called ladder fuels do to their ability to allow a fire to climb from the forest floor into a canopy. David’s Caretaking recommends raising your ladder fuels a minimum 6-8 feet from the ground and picking up needle and pinecones once a year. Once a fire reaches the tree canopy it can spread fast and become unpredictable.
