What can you do about weeds?

We can usually have weeds removed prior to fire season if they are taller than 3 inches, and create a fire hazard within 100 feet from a structure (more than 100 feet if in a required fuel modification zone).

Los Angeles County Department of Agriculture takes care of weed abatement on unimproved land (vacant lots) and we take care of other property. You may call Fire Prevention at 909-596-5991 (Monday through Thursday, 8 am to 4 pm) for more information.
