The current Pandemic Stay at Home orders allow gardeners/landscape/tree contractors to work on private property to reduce fire hazards. The Oakland Fire Department has announced that they will start the annual Inspections for Defensible Space in May.
The Oakland Firesafe Council has compiled a list of gardeners/contractors who are available to provide estimates for defensible space vegetation management on your property. This listing is intended as a guidance tool for homeowners. Always request multiple bids from providers, and interview potential contractors. The Oakland Firesafe Council does not guarantee that the contractors are qualified to perform requested work, and advises residents to verify that any services provider has current licenses and carries adequate insurance.
Please feel free to send new referrals to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can add them to the list.
