Fourth of July is unimaginable without parties and traditional fireworks. Unfortunately, even though we may not like to admit it, this type of entertainment can often be the cause of major problems, such as forest fires.
Many people prefer to believe that fireworks have a very low risk of starting fires, which is somewhat true, in the case of controlled fireworks. But let's not forget all the partygoers who use Fourth of July pyrotechnic devices, without questioning their quality or safe use. In addition, there is the danger of cigarette buds thrown away irresponsibly and unattended campfires.
So, if you have a forested property, you should be extra careful this Fourth of July. The smoke produced by the fires affects human health, causing diseases of the eyes, skin and respiratory system, not to mention their potential to destroy flora, fauna, as well as private properties. An ember propagated by vegetation on a forested private property can ignite, in a very short time, the house and household outbuildings.
If you are a forested property owner, make sure you consider wildfire mitigation services and have tree removal done if necessary, to minimize the risks related to the destructive effects that a wildfire may have on your property.
