What is the best distance from the tree line to protect your home in the woods?

Dear Diane,

If you're trying to protect your home from wildfire that could spread from your trees to your home, we recommend a safe distance of about 30 feet. This should include removing dead wood such as branches, as well as overhanging limbs that might carry the fire.

Our wildfires section will have some more information to help you out, check it out here!
