Brush Clearing in Los Angeles
LA's #1 Trusted Brush Removal Service
During wildfire season, brush removal is critically important. Fires spread easily by feeding on the dry brush that may have been collected on your property. When you don’t take preventative measures to remove brush buildup, you are potentially endangering those around you, putting your property and loved ones at risk and, possibly contributing to the wildfire spread.
Recently, the LA City Council issued new brush clearance requirements. In order to mitigate the threat of wildfires, property owners must comply with this new ordinance or face hefty non-compliance fees and penalties from the Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD). Beginning in the first week of May, their brush task force will be initiating property inspections. To prepare for these upcoming inspections, contact us at Green Leaf Zone for brush and weeds removal services. When you work with our professional brush removal service department, you are taking an important proactive step in wildfire prevention while beautifying your property as well.
Do I Really Need Brush Clearing Services?
Brush clearance is a form of vegetation management and, in some areas, it is mandated by the city of Los Angeles. These areas are known as Very High Fire Hazard Severity Zones. They are depicted in red on the official Los Angeles Fire Department zone map. We advise homeowners and business owners to avoid the risks of DIY brush clearing by hiring a professional weed and brush clearing company. Unfortunately, many individuals are tempted to clear the brush themselves. Despite their good intentions, the LAFD reports that homeowners have actually started fires while attempting to remove brush from their land. What is more, it’s proven to be non-cost effective. At Green Leaf Zone, we are equipped with proper tools and equipment which allows us to safely remove hazardous brush. We have a deep knowledge of brush clearance requirements and always take the appropriate safety measures before starting a project.

Our Services & Specialties
We offer a variety of tree services in Ventura County and the surrounding areas. We’ve listed some of our specialties below:
Trees are natural works of art, however, sometimes they need the help of professionals to make sure they grow to be as healthy and beautiful as possible. This is especially true of trees that are diseased, decaying or growing in such a manner where they pose a potential risk to human life or surrounding property. Inaction can potentially leave you and your loved ones in danger, whilst simultaneously exposing your property and possessions to serious damage.
Most professional arborists recommend tree trimming every three years, even if you can’t see specific loose-hanging branches. This preventative action will decrease your long-term maintenance costs. According to the LA Controller Office, “a tree that is trimmed or inspected annually requires less time and effort than a tree that is trimmed once every decade”. Prolonged periods of deferred maintenance increase the likelihood of tree failure or other conditions that require emergency tree services (which is often more expensive).
Tree trimming and pruning is often carried out at great heights and should not be attempted by just anyone. At Green Leaf Zone, we are certified, professional contractors. We are uniquely qualified to perform tree removal services because our staff completes difficulty safety training while complying with all licensing requirements. Moreover, we carry comprehensive insurance to cover any accidents.
If left to their own devices, tree stumps can cause an array of problems. Firstly, there is the fact that tree stumps can be an eye-sore in your well-kept grounds, and present potential tripping hazards for people of all ages.
Neglected tree stumps can cause bad smells to emanate from odorous root rot. Stumps can also attract insects such as termites as the stump’s roots continue to grow. Finally, particularly large tree stumps can obstruct waterways and prevent proper drainage.
Grinding a tree stump is not something a homeowner should attempt alone. In fact, many landscaping services do not have the equipment and expertise necessary for safe and efficient stump removal. Our industrial grade wood chipper is equipped to handle the tough, thick wood of your tree stump. Smaller wood chippers have been known to break or jam when used for large stumps.
Wildfires are always a concern in Southern California, particularly during the warmer summer months. One of the requirements from local fire departments is to make sure that your property or business is free from brush so that fires don’t have vegetation with which to continue their rapid spread.
