Chipping Services Program

May contain: tractor, transportation, vehicle, device, grass, lawn, lawn mower, plant, and tool

Residents can increase the chance of their home's survival of a wildfire by limiting the amount of flammable vegetation, choosing fire-resistant building materials and construction techniques, along with periodic exterior maintenance in the three home ignition zones.

Reducing Wildfire Risk in the Home Ignition Zone

To ease the burden of debris removal for Hoodland Fire District Residents, Hoodland Fire District #74 is offering a program to fund chipping services for residents.
