Susanville weed abatement
Eugene Hoskinson, Owner
Eugene Hoskinson likes plants and making things grow. He also understands one spark can engulf a home in flames devastating an entire family’s sense of place and security . People’s safety and helping them comply with the local fire marshal are especially high priorities this year, as fire season approaches in the midst of the worst drought California has faced in many years.
Over the course of his career Mr. Hoskinson has worked with many homeowners, realtors, and property managers. His expertise has also been employed by entities like the City of Riverside, CA; the Fire Department of the city of Susanville, CA; and the Plumas Fire Safe Council. His experience encompasses everything from tree trimming to fire fuel management.
When Mr. Hoskinson moved to Susanville three years ago, he saw the need for more than just an experienced gardener. Someone knowledgeable was required to address defensible space issues. With several certificates in horticulture from the University of California at Riverside symposium, Mr. Hoskison took up the challenge and started Susanville Weed Abatement.
Susanville Weed Abatement is licensed, insured, and certified to deliver a wide variety of services: yard work, tree trimming, fence repair, fire reduction, and the subsequent hauling of trash and debris. Homeowners who are able to clear their own property, in compliance with fire codes, can call on Susanville Weed Abatement to do the hauling. The company also serves realtors and property managers who need defensible space or trash-out hauling provided. “I guarantee my customers will pass with the fire marshal,” Mr. Hoskinson states with confidence.
The Fire Department of the City of Susanville has contracted with Susanville Weed Abatement to have trees lifted, a method of tree trimming that allows firefighters can get into an area. The company has also been employed to eliminate grasses, weeds, and trash that may pose obstacles to firefighters or threats to property safety.
