Nevermind insurance companies. A little observance of "wildfires" on the
West coast area of the U.S. is enough for me. They build their houses in
the middle of the forest and wonder why they burn down. Forests, and other
foliage areas naturally have burnoff, its nature's way of cleaning up.
You can have a few trees near the house for shade and eye appeal. The
native tree clearance distance should be increased to prevent fire jumping
to these, thus your house.
