Protecting the Foothills & Mountains West of Denver

Protect Your Home & Family From Forest Fires

While the Colorado foothills west of Denver are a beautiful place to live, the area is unfortunately prone to devastating wildfires. For that reason, fire mitigation is one of the most important and effective ways to protect yourself, your family and your home from the risk of catastrophic damage in a forest fire.

What Is Wildfire Mitigation?

Wildfire mitigation allows you to minimize the destructive effects a wildfire has on your property by creating a defensible space around your home and modifying the home's construction (for example, the materials used to build your house). Defensible space is the area around your house where the vegetation, including shrubs and trees, has been modified or removed to reduce the intensity of a wildfire and slow its spread.

Fire Mitigation Services from LAM Tree Service

Our tree care professionals focus on reducing the amount of combustible plant fuels around your property to create a defensible space.

We focus on three levels of potential threats to your property:

Ground Fuels - These are combustible materials found on the ground, such as dry leaves and needles, fallen trees and branches, and dead plants (including trees). Removing them helps to slow down the speed and intensity of a wildfire.

Ladder Fuels - Ladder fuels are materials that allow a fire to spread upward from the ground to the tree canopy or your roof. We carefully remove young trees/saplings, the lower branches of trees and any large shrubs that could ignite in a fire.

Top Fuels - Heavy tree canopies allow fire to quickly jump from tree to tree and spread beyond the reach of fire crews on the ground. Selectively thinning tree canopies can lower the risk of fire spreading.

How We Can Help

The Certified Arborists at LAM Tree Service can help you create a defensible and beautiful space around your home. By carefully choosing plants that are less flammable, planting and properly spacing them in areas that are less likely to contribute to wildfire, and maintaing healthy plants that are more fire resistant, you can have an attractive landscape that mitigates the spread of wildfire.

Ryan worked with us on thinning our Evergreens. Most people don't want to do this, yet its really the way to go. The remaining trees are much healthier, and the view is much more spectacular. Ryan is thoughtful and polite and takes the time to explain the various options. We very much appreciated how he meets his commitments on timing and his follow through. He also has a wonderful dog as a sidekick.
