Wildfire Partners Chipping Program

Wildfire Partners offers a free chipping program each summer to homeowners participating in Wildfire Partners. You build the slash pile(s), and we'll chip it on site and haul it away for you. Each address can only apply once per calendar year.

Our chipping program has concluded for 2021. We will email all Wildfire Partners participants in the spring of 2022 with information for next year's chipping services.

Thank you for running the chipping program again this year. We sincerely hope the program runs again next year. It is a brilliant idea and getting slash cleaned up is SO IMPORTANT!!

2021 Chipping Program Information

Subject to change for 2022 - please check back in Spring 2022 for updated program information

To qualify for free curbside chipping, you must have completed your initial assessment prior to your pick-up week. If you have purchased a certified home from a previous owner, you will still need to have completed a new assessment to qualify for chipping.

The deadline to apply is by 5 p.m. on the Thursday before your chipping week.

How it works:

  • Registration is limited to the first 50 participants per zone.
  • The deadline to apply is 5 p.m. the Thursday before your chipping week. Any applications received after that will not be accepted.
  • You must live on a maintained road that our chipping trailer and truck are able to drive through or be able to turn around. We reserve the right to refuse services based on insufficient access.
  • Stage your slash by the roadside by 8 a.m. Tuesday of your pick-up week.
  • Make sure your slash pile(s) are neatly stacked with cut ends no larger than six inches in diameter.
  • Make sure your slash pile is no bigger than 40 feet wide, five feet tall and five feet deep. You can have two piles that total no more than 40 feet wide between the two of them.
  • New to Wildfire Partners? All you have to do to qualify for free chipping is put in an application to Wildfire Partners and complete your initial assessment.
