2022 Los Angeles County Brush Clearance Regulations

Clearing the loose, dry brush on your property is an essential part of protecting your home and community against wildfires. Use this handy breakdown of LA’s 2022 brush clearance regulations to protect your property from wildfires.

Keep your roof clear of leaves, twigs, needles, and other debris. Don’t let overhanging branches come within less than 5 feet of your roof.

Keep all trees trimmed so that all foliage is 10+ feet away from your chimney. If the tree is larger than 18 feet, trim the lower branches so all foliage is more than 6 feet off the ground. For trees and shrubs shorter than 18 feet, remove all lower branches to 1/3 of their height. Keep the ground clear of all dead materials.

Keep all grass and native brush within 200 feet of your fence or shed at a height of 3 inches or less. For added protection, only install fire-resistant fencing on your property.

Keep your spread material at least 10 feet away from all roadways.
