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. If you clear woody vegetation from around your home and stack it in a slash pile, we’ll chip it and haul it away at no cost.
The Chipping program has ended for 2020, but will return in spring 2021. For more information, call (970) 668-4140.
When it comes to wildfire, it takes everyone to protect everyone.
