LWFR Brush Chipping Pile Guidelines:

 

  • Chipping piles should be hand stacked only, no machine stacking (i.e. using a tractor to create large stacks of brush or branches)

  • Place all stems of trees and brush facing the same direction, with the cut or butt ends facing the driveway/road

  • All trees and limbs must be under 8” in diameter

  • Brush pile shall be no taller than 5 feet

  • All piles shall be free of dirt, rocks, loose pine needles, noxious weeds, animal waste, garbage, plastic, and metal. 

 

If you have a special, unique, or large project that might push the parameters of these guidelines please contact Danny Bacheldor, Wildfire Risk Reduction Coordinator, at dbacheldor@lwfr.org for further assistance.  

By checking this box, you agree that these guidelines have been met. If the chipping crew feels your piles are unacceptable they will ask the brush to be re-stacked or re-sorted in order to best fit these guidelines. 

Thank you for your submission! You have been added to the chipping list. The Chipping Crew will come out to chip at your location as soon as possible. Chipping will start about early May.
