SPRING 2014 VOLUME 25 , ISSUE 2 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 A well-managed forest can increase the value of your property and protect it against wildfires – both benefits well worth considering.
