Chipping Service Suspended

THE CHIPPING PROGRAM IS SUSPENDED

May 12, 2020: This morning the executive board of the El Dorado County Fire Safe Council 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 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.
