Thank you so much to all that regularly participate in our community chipping days! It is always a huge success. We are a Fire Wise community, so please keep all areas around your home and in our common areas free of debris.
Stay tuned for dates of the next chipping event. When the next date is announced, this is what you can do to make it another successful event by doing the following:
1. Place debris to be chipped in the right-of-way along the roadsides where it is easily accessible.
2. Keep debris set out for chipping to less than six inches in diameter. You do not need to cut longer limbs into piles of shorter limbs, as it is actually more time efficient for workers to process piles of longer limbs than it is to process piles of shorter limbs. Also, stacking debris so that all the limbs face in one direction results in less processing time (intertwined debris is particularly time consuming to separate and process).
3. Volunteer to help with chipping if you are able. While we pay a tree service to provide workers and a chipper, community volunteers can help reduce the time and work effort involved in the chipping, which results in a reduced cost to the community, as well. If you would like to volunteer, please call the office or contact Don Findell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
