Alhambra is a city located about eight miles to the north of Downtown Los Angeles in the San Gabriel Valley. The region was initially inhabited by the Tongva Native American tribe until 1771, when the Spanish conquered and settled it, founding the San Gabriel Mission (for which the valley is named). Upon Mexican Independence in 1820, California became a part of Mexico for several decades before being taken over by the United States following the Mexican-American War. The land that now includes Alhambra was owned by Bernardo Yorba, whose daughter named the city after Washington Irving’s book Tales of the Alhambra. The name stuck and the city of Alhambra was finally incorporated in 1903. It is now home to around 85,000 residents and has built a reputation for the incredible, diverse architecture of its historic homes. Alhambra has spawned a host of famous athletes, entertainers and artists and perhaps most notably, was the home of Norman Rockwell in the beginning of the 1930’s.
Though Alhambra is somewhat insulated from the dense woodlands where California wildfires are most common, the city is still full of green and wooded areas. Part of being a home or business owner in this area of Los Angeles is making sure your outdoor space is properly cared for in case a wildfire were to break out suddenly. This means remaining vigilant about removing dead trees and dry brush that could potentially fuel a blaze.
Green Leaf Zone’s team of certified, bonded and insured tree professionals provides affordable tree removal and maintenance services to homeowners in Alhambra. Giving the necessary attention to the trees on your property comes with a significant risk of injury, especially for those who do not have the proper equipment for the job. At Green Leaf Zone, we have the expertise and equipment to tackle the task safely and efficiently, whether your trees need pruning or you have an old stump that needs to be ground down and disposed of.

Clearing the brush throughout your property is an essential part of readying it for wildfire season. Loose, dry brush is the primary source of fuel for wildfires and having an excess amount on your property will accelerate the fire’s spread. As Californians, it is our communal responsibility to do our part in the continuous battle against wildfires. Taking care of brush clearing not only protects your family and home, but those of your neighbors as well. At Green Leaf Zone, we make vegetation management and brush clearing simple and affordable. Our expert team uses specialized equipment to remove all potential wildfires hazards and make sure your property remains in accordance with local fire code ordinances.
As the frequency of wildfires continues to rise, the City of Los Angeles has issued requirements for brush and weed clearing in an effort to reduce the impact of fires in Southern California. An important component of the fight against wildfires is creating defensible space between the structures on your property and any trees of vegetation in close proximity. California fire departments consistently advise home and business owners to create defensible space on their property so that our firefighters can position themselves between your home and have the necessary space to protect it. At Green Leaf Zone, we have decades of experience creating defensible space for property owners in Southern California and we are well-versed in the local fire safety precautions.
Keeping up with the appearance of your outdoor space and making sure it stays in accordance with wildfire safety ordinances can be overwhelming, particularly for homeowners who lack the tools and expertise required to manage vegetation properly.
