You can protect your home from wildfire with help from the Summit County Chipping Program. Summit County government helps residents and property owners create defensible space by providing free chipping and disposal for branches, logs and small trees.
The Chipping Program has ended for 2022, but will return in Spring 2023. For more information, call (970) 389-5756.
When it comes to wildfire, it takes everyone to protect everyone.
