Only You Can Prevent Forest Fires
ver the past several years, Colorado has become increasingly
at risk of wildﬁres, and landowners are being encouraged to
take steps to safeguard their property against ﬁre. Clearing
the vegetation around buildings, removing dangerous trees near
structures that could fall during a ﬁre, trimming up the lower
branches and thinning trees in surrounding areas can go a long way
in preventing the spread of wildﬁres.
T-ROX Brush and Tree Clearing business specializes in ﬁre
mitigation, along with tree and brush clearing, limbing, and
mulching trees to the ground, including stumps. Roxanne Briggs and
Terry Brown of Trinidad started the business in April 2013, realizing
the need for these types of services in Southern Colorado. Early in
2013 they purchased additional clearing equipment: a Gehl 110-HP turbo charged skid steer with carbonized brush
tooth heads, and in 2014 they added a 6.6' brush axe, and forks with a grapple for moving trees and landscape rocks
to the arsenal of equipment they have at their disposal. "Now we're equipped to tackle any size of tree, and the
variety of options available to landowners for disposal range from haul away or cutting and splitting for ﬁrewood, to
mulching pre-existing brush piles," says Roxanne. T-ROX is licensed, bonded and insured; and free estimates are
available, as well as referrals from their many satisﬁed customers. Their expertise has won them contracts with the
Division of Forestry Services and with individual property owners in Santa Fe Trail Ranch.
If you're looking to prevent loss due to ﬁre, or simply improve the appearance of your property, contact T-ROX
at (719) 845-0024, (719) 859-5949 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. A well-managed forest can increase the
value of your property and protect it against wildﬁres – both beneﬁts well worth considering.
