Westlake Village is a small city in Los Angeles County situated on the southwest edge of the San Fernando Valley, just on the border with Ventura County. It was named after the pre-planned community of Westlake, which changed its name to avoid being confused with the downtown LA district of the same name. In 1963, American shipping magnate Daniel K. Ludwig bought 12,000 acres of land for $32 million and partnered with Prudential Insurance to commission the planning and development of Westlake Village (then just Westlake). Because California law prohibits a city from existing in two counties, more than half of the community was annexed by Thousand Oaks and the remainder was incorporated into Los Angeles County in 1981 under the name Westlake Village. The city is perhaps best known for its massive, 125-acre man-made lake which acts as the community’s centerpiece. Westlake Village is currently home to just over 8,000 residents.
Westlake Village’s proximity to nearby woodland areas places it at potentially high risk for wildfires. In order to protect their properties and that of their neighbors, residents must consistently maintain their green spaces by clearing any loose brush or dead trees that could fuel a fire. Green Leaf Zone has built a reputation in the Los Angeles area for affordable, efficient tree removal and pruning, brush clearing and stump grinding services, and outstanding customer service.

Clearing the brush on your property and disposing of it in an environmentally-friendly manner is an essential part of getting your property ready for wildfire season.
