Firebreak Services

What is a Firebreak? A fire break is generally 3 meter wide bare earth path around the outer edges of a property but it may have go to 6 meters wide if it is adjacent to a highly populated area.

Fire breaks are required by law above a specified land area and the shires or councils inspect them regularly for compliance. For some organisations we also cover fire breaks with limestone or Ferrocrete  to make them trafficable and keep down the weeds, a popular service we provide to utility companies.

We typically install firebreaks with skid steers or tractors with attachments on them such as disc ploughs, rake buckets or mulchers. Each council has a slightly different requirement for how firebreaks are installed and maintained, we make sure to check each council’s regulations before quoting on the job.

Service Area

Firebreaks Perth & WA

We presently offer fire break slashing services in Perth and regional WA.

Every year, land owners are required to clear inflammable matter on land owned and or occupied, and must be maintained until certain month the following year. There are specific requirements and time frames for various shires in Western Australia that you’ll need to comply with. Part of this responsibility is to make sure that your land is free of combustible material during the fire season. Failing to comply with local requirements can mean paying a hefty penalty.

We regularly service suburbs north of the river from Yanchep to Joondalup, South of the river from South Perth to Mandurah and in the Perth hills and regional WA.

We also regularly slash firebreaks in the Perth Hills including suburbs like Mundaring, Kalamunda, Martin and Armadale.

If you live in regional WA, please get in touch with our team to see if we can remove trees in your area.
