Merlin and Seamus volunteer each year to renest raptors with the Bird Rescue Center. Check out the video they created to highlight the renesting program!
Does your property meet fire safety requirements for Sonoma County?
Creating defensible space can help protect your home in the event of a fire. Sonoma County has defensible space requirements and is beginning to implement inspections on a small number of properties this year. We can help you assess and reduce vegetative fire risks you may have on your property.
Reduce the risk of fire damage to your property by implementing the following:
-Cut grass to maximum height of four inches
-Remove leaves, needles and other vegetation from roofs, gutters, decks, porches and other outside areas
-Pruning lower tree branches to a height of at least six feet from the ground
-Removing dead or dying trees, branches or shrubs adjacent to or overhanging buildings and all branches within 10 feet of any stovepipe or chimney outlet
-Maintaining at least 6 inches of clearance between flammable mulches or tree duff and house siding
-Removing combustible debris, such as trash, cardboard or wood near buildings
-Clearing space around propane tanks
