When is the best time of year to work on your defensible space?

A. Your defensible space should be maintained year-round. October-December is typically the most horticulturally sound time of year to prune and clear and avoid active nesting season. There are many other factors to consider when working with wildland interfaces. Local Native plant specialists, and the local Master Gardener groups can be helpful with tips for maintaining local insect and amphibious communities.
