Curbside Chipping

In addition to fuels management and fire suppression, our hand crews also provide Curbside         Chipping services.                                                                                              Chipping 1

REQUEST CURBSIDE CHIPPING

Typically the chipping crew is able to complete requests within one week, however, due to fire assignments and variable crew size, please allow up to three weeks. This service is available in Spring through the Fall months.

Please note the following guidelines when requesting this service:

  • Piles must be curbside and easily accessible.
  • The branch diameter cannot exceed 6 inches.
  • Pile must not contain stumps, roots, garbage, nails, lumber, or pine cones.
  • Pile must not exceed 30 feet in length, 6 feet in height, and 6 feet in width.

Chips will be left on-site and can be spread around the property for landscaping or erosion control, but not within 5 feet of a structure. If you choose to spread the chips within 30 feet of a structure, ensure that mulch beds are separated by noncombustible areas, such as dirt, rock, or pathways. Also, ensure that mulched areas do not contain highly flammable vegetation.
