Neighborhood Chipper Program

This Neighborhood Chipper Program helps property owners create defensible space and reduce the likelihood of catastrophic fire. After clearing brush and small trees from around homes, residents can participate in neighborhood events by piling branches, limbs, and other woody vegetation on the curbside. On the day of the event the mobile wood chipper and crew comes to you!

This program is a partnership effort with the San Mateo County FireSafe Council with funding from San Mateo County.


Be prepared, learn more about Defensible Space on the FireSafe San Mateo County website!
