THE CHIPPING PROGRAM IS SUSPENDED
December 1, 2020: The executive board of the El Dorado County Fire Safe Council has made the difficult decision to suspend the chipping program. No new applications will be accepted. Applications that have a job number assigned will be completed. The program is currently funded by a grant from PG&E and CAL FIRE and the grant dollars have been nearly depleted. The homeowner insurance crisis, El Dorado County Vegetation ordinance and the COVID-19 stay at home order have contributed to an unprecedented increase in demand for the program. Our all-volunteer staff are aggressively seeking additional funding sources from our collaborators and will reopen the program as soon as additional funding is secured.
