Juniper Trees Near Your Rentals? Nevada Says They Could be a Fire Hazard

apts nevada: juniperAs a follow up to my article on rentals Nevada I found this and wanted to link to it.

Do you have juniper trees growing near your rentals? Nevada says these trees can be a fire hazard when it gets hot and dry.

Ed Smith of the University of Nevada Cooperative Extension says junipers, “have a low water requirement for Nevada. And they’re pretty maintenance free.” He also says, “They retain their dead leaves and dead branches. And so if you look back in here and pull back the crown on a mature juniper, you’ll see all these dead leaves.”  Dead leaves that are packed with flammable resins.

Last year two apartments burned because of dry Juniper trees according to http://www.ktvn.com/story/15062167/juniper-trees-fire-danger-in-the-city.
