Zone 1 | 0-5 feet
Use fire-safe landscaping materials such as noncombustible mulches, rocks or gravel and low-growing plants. Clear away debris from gutters, roof valleys, exterior walls, fences and around or underneath decks.
Zone 2 | 5-30 feet
Remove any combustible structures like trellises, fences, fuel tanks and wood piles. Maintain at least 30 feet of separation between mature trees and ensure that any tree canopy is farther than 30 feet from the home.
Zone 3 | 30-100+ feet
Thin, separate and regularly prune trees to prevent fire from climbing up tree trunks or traveling from one tree to the next. Clear any dead plant materials or tree branches.
