AshBritt called to action in Lake County, CA for the 2015 Valley Fire
AshBritt is currently finishing a hazardous tree removal project for Lake County, CA. Operations are focused on felling, trimming, and chipping of fire damaged and destroyed trees in the ROW and on private property. Throughout this project, we are abiding by all FEMA Fire Management Assistance Grant Program (FMAG) guidelines for Lake County, CA to maximize their federal reimbursement for the Valley Fire and Butte Fire (DR-4240). AshBritt has processed over 100,000 cubic yards of fire damaged and destroyed trees for this project.
