All plants are flammable if not pruned periodically. There are types of trees and vegetation that are more flammable than others, however. High oil, high resin, or low moisture content in the leaves and branches can make increase this risk. On properties where vegetation is allowed to overgrow and take over structures, this risk is particularly significant.
Weed abatement is the process of removing plants, grasses, or trees that pose a fire hazard to structures and transportation routes. Creating space around a building can reduce the risk of loss to property and life from a fire. The mix of heat, wind, and fuel in the form of dead and unmanaged vegetation can contribute the potential damage.
