To service all remaining requests for defensible space inspections and chipping in a timely manner and prior to potential inclement weather approaching, the last day to request chipping and defensible space inspections is Sunday, October 29, 2023. However, the Fire District will continue defensible space inspections for construction projects as weather permits. The October 29th closing deadline will allow the Fire District time to complete the last requests for the 2023 season.
For chipping requests, please remember that the pile must be curbside and not exceed 20 feet in length, 6 feet in height, and 6 feet in width. Branch diameter cannot exceed 6 inches, and no stumps, roots, garbage, nails, or finished lumber.
To date, the Fire District has completed 651 defensible space inspections and 194 chipping requests resulting in 864 cubic yards of biomass for the 2023 season.
The Fire District would like to thank everyone who has expressed an interest in learning about what they can do to make their homes more defendable from wildland fire and spending the necessary time to do the work around their homes, for more information visit tahoelivingwithfire.com.
