With the number of wildfires in California expected to see a sixfold increase in the next 30 years, it’s essential that Los Angeles property owners are prepared.
Understanding the common causes of wildfires will help you know what steps to take to prevent the flames from occurring in the first place. Fortunately, the experienced arborists at Green Leaf Zone are here to help.
Check out our infographic below to learn about the three most common causes of wildfires and how our brush clearing services can help protect your home.
Unattended campfires can quickly escalate into large-scale wildfires. While having a campfire, keep a watchful eye on the flames and always have a fire extinguisher or large container full of water nearby.
Lightning is the leading natural cause of wildfires. This typically happens if a lightning bolt strikes dry debris. To keep your home safe, ensure your property is clear of brush.
Hazards at Home
Unextinguished cigarettes, burning large piles of debris, and arson can all start wildfires. Fully extinguish your cigarette and put the butt in an ashtray, don’t burn waste on your property, and immediately call the police if you witness arson.
