Curbside chipping free in Lake Valley Fire Protection District through October
Free curbside chipping service is available to homeowners within the Lake Valley Fire Protection District through the 2017 field season.
The service is available through the end of October, weather conditions permitting, according to an announcement from the fire district. This free service assists homeowners by converting slash and cut limbs into wood chips that can be used on their property, while reducing flammable vegetation and helping create defensible space.
Services are offered to district residents in South Lake Tahoe, Fallen Leaf, and El Dorado and Alpine counties.
Lake Valley FPD encourages any homeowners who have received a fire defensible space inspection this summer to complete all of the fuel reduction recommendations.
In order to help maximize efficiency, Lake Valley FPD asks all piles be properly stacked and located. (Instructions are provided at http://www.lakevalleyfire.org.)
Homeowners are instructed to contact Lake Valley Fire Protection District at 530-577-2447 to be added to the chipping schedule.
Lake Valley FPD’s curbside chipping program is funded by Tahoe Network of Fire Adapted Communities Grant in conjunction with the Tahoe Resource Conservation District.
