Excess vegetation near the structure has been thinned or removed. Native vegetation has been thinned and "limbed-up" to reduce possibility of ignition from fire on the ground. Trimmings have been stacked in a line for ease of feeding the chipper.
Home and outbuilding now have more easily defended space that will, in addition to looking more tidy, provide a buffer against wildfire and allow firefighters easier access and a better chance at protecting the property.
