Butte Co offering hazardous brush removal service

Apr 5, 2016 8:49 PM by David McVicker

Butte County Fire Safe Council announced its annual Chipper Program by offering brush removal services to residents who are working on their wildfire safety clearance. The program provides an alternative to burning or hauling fire-hazardous brush.

The Chipper Program is in its fifteenth year and anticipates offering service this season until May 16. Program coordinators warn not to wait to get fire prevention work done.

To prepare brush and limbs for the Chipper Program:

  • Stack cut brush and limbs in a row within 5 feet of the road edge with the ends facing towards the road.
  • Rows should be stacked no more that 4 feet high.
  • Keep mud, rocks and roots out of the rows.
  • Locate the rows so the truck and chipper can easily access them, no off-road locations allowed.

To participate in the Chipper Program please call 530-877-0984.
