WHAT IS A FIRE BREAK?
A fire break is a strip of land that has been cleared of all flammable material (leaves, grass and wood) that would be likely ignited and capable of burning. Having appropriate fire breaks around your home and business during the dangerous summer months could be the difference between saving and losing all you’ve worked hard for. Using a Tree company for fire breaks makes the job that much simpler.
A&D Tree services understands this so we have been providing fire mitigation services to Homes, businesses, local and state departments, land management agencies and the SES and Department of Fire and Emergency Services across the South Coast for decades now.
WHY DO I NEED A TREE COMPANY FOR FIRE BREAKS?
Living in Australia we are all aware that bushfires are a looming threat with the potential to destroy our homes, businesses and possessions. Bushfires are an unavoidable reality so taking every step we can to protect the things and people around us from this threat is undoubtedly the best course of action.
By getting a professional, highly knowledgeable company like A&D Tree Services to create fire breaks around your home, business or council area you are able to give yourself peace of mind that in the case of a fire the places that matter are protected and easily accessible by firefighting crews.
Some might wrongly assume that if Nowra and the Shoalhaven has experienced higher than normal rainfall for a decent portion of the year the risk of bushfires is much lower.
However increased rainfall also sees increased vegetation growth that can increase the risk once warmer drier periods happen throughout the season.
FIRE MITIGATION FOR BUSHFIRE SEASON
The drier and hotter conditions during the bushfire season are perfectly suited for bushfires to start and spread wildly. The summer breeze can also propel dangerous ash and embers leading to an increased risk of fires starting and spreading.
While it’s critical to have fire breaks in place for bushfire season, having the correct fire breaks in place is vital year round. Making sure your firebreaks are in place and properly maintained by a professional tree company for fire breaks, experienced in fire breaks will give you peace of mind that you are well prepared in the event of bushfire.
