Wildland Urban Interface Home Project – Week 3

It’s week three of our Wildland Urban Interface Home Project of the Week Campaign.

Here’s a quick recap of the projects in week one and two:

Week 1: Declutter – move anything that can burn (wood, trash, etc.) away from your home.

Week 2: The Roof – Remove debris from roof and gutters.

This week the project is PRUNING. Cut tree branches so that the lowest limbs are 6 to 10 feet off the ground and aren’t overhanging the roof, decks, or porches. Cut bushes and shrubs so that they aren’t touching your home and remove dead vegetation.
