Wood Chipping 2020

Wood chipping is planned for August 18th-19th. Summit County is now the responsible entity that provides us with this service.

This service helps us ensure the reduction of fire hazards by chipping wood piles that have been prepared through our cleanup work. The crews will complete as many piles as time allows.

As a reminder: only piles that have been properly stacked will be chipped. Stacks must be near the road or your driveway. Do not extend stacks into the borrow ditches or BSR roads so as to not hinder traffic or any necessary road work. Wood must be stacked in parallel formation. Do not cut logs into short pieces. Longer logs allow for more efficient work and cleanup. Stacking similar diameter pieces together will also help the crew be more efficient. Chippings will be left near your pile.

The picture shows how the wood needs to be stacked: larger diameter end facing the road for easy access and handling.  If not properly stacked, the crews may bypass your property. Now is a good time to begin if you have not already started cleaning your property and stacking wood in preparation for the chipping project. Don’t forget to file a NFP In-Kind Form.
