Chaffee Chips has announced their 2023 events.
To help landowners create defensible space around their homes, Chaffee Chips will coordinate free neighborhood slash removal and chipping services in seven geographic areas this year. The countywide fire mitigation program reduces the threat of wildfire by helping homeowners remove potential fire fuels. Property owners in the service areas are asked to cut and clear brush and trees before the event and pile them at their curbs.
Since Chaffee Chips started in 2020, more than 400 landowners have created 1,400 piles of slash that were chipped on site by the Colorado State Forest Service or hauled away by Chaffee County Fire Protection District firefighters.
The 2023 service dates begin on May 10th at Chateau Chaparral and end October 17th at Mesa Antero.
