Defend Your Space

Reducing fuels on your property doesn't mean cutting down all your trees, and is doesn't mean wildfire risk is eliminated. It means that if a fire starts, you have taken precautions to help keep the fire fightable on the ground. Really, it's all about lowering intensity -  reducing debris, diseased trees, and ladder fuels that cause fire to burn out of control, inflicting catastrophic damage on homes, farms and the forest itself. Swedberg Contracting takes into account the diverse factors at play - forest health, overcrowding, ground vegetation, geographic features - and creates effective, site-specific, and aesthetically-pleasing strategies for protecting your personal property.
