If you live along the Front Range of Colorado, you live in a forest that was meant to burn. Historically, fire has been the primary disturbance process to shape the structure and composition of our forests. Without frequent low-intensity surface fires, forests become overly dense and fuels accumulate. Over 100 years of fire suppression in the Front Range, as well as recent drought and pine beetle outbreaks, has led to prime conditions for destructive high intensity fires. Combine this with more and more people living in these forest areas, and there arises a need to mitigate wildfire risks to ensure that people can live in and enjoy these areas safely. That’s where we come in. We can essentially perform many of the functions in the landscape that fire would have performed on your forest lot, only in a much less destructive way. By thinning trees and reducing fuels, we can help make your property healthier and safer by making it more resistant to high intensity fire. We can also help you make your property as safe and accessible as possible for firefighters in the case of a fire, a process called creating wildfire-defensible space. No matter what size your project is, from chipping brush piles to designing and implementing a complete wildfire mitigation plan for your property, we at Boos and Sons are here to help.
