Stacking Piles for Chipping

-When stacking debris, please place all the stems and tress and brush pointing the same direction with the cut ends toward the road. This makes the pile easier to pull apart to feed the chipper.

-Max pile height is 5 feet.

-Individual cut pieces must not be thicker than 8″ in diameter.

-Stack similar sized items together in piles. Please pile items by hand.

-Debris should not be blocking any traffic.

-Chipping will occur in mid to late October.

Please track your hours preparing for the chipping crew. Proof of landowner contribution is required for this program. Record your time raking, pruning, thinning trees, and other activities to make your home better prepared for wildfire.
