01

 What is a Fire break?

  A fire break is a  gap in vegetation or other combustible material that acts as a barrier to slow or stop the progress of a bushfire or wildfire. 

 
 

02

What is Defensible Space?

 

 Defensible space reduces the risk that fire will spread from the surroundings to the structure and provides firefighters access and a safer area to defend it from. Firefighters sometimes do not attempt to protect structures without adequate defensible space, as it is less safe and less likely to succeed. (Also in california you are required to provide 100 feet of defensible space around your property )

03

Why multi terrain loaders?

 

 When ground conditions are soft or more traction is required, the tracks on the multi terrain loader make it the logical choice of machinery. They also provide the least amount of impact on the terrain averaging 4 psi per square foot   ( to put that in perspective a averge adult applys 8psi to the ground.)

04

When should i disk?

 

 Disking can be done threw most of the year but most succesfull in early spring and fall

disking is also the best way to build a fire break since your turning the biomass back in the soil  for decompositon and with a few extra passes you can bury almost 90 percent of the vegatation.

 

05

why should i mow instead of disk?

 

 Mowing is a cheaper alternative to disking since it can be done alot faster it is often done by home owners.  when done in conjunction with a disked firebreak   and on plots bigger thab 3 acres most counties will accept it during their anual fire inspections instead of a completly disked parcel of land.
