Chipper Day Sign Up

July 24, 2021~ Robles del Rio Neighborhood Chipper Day associated with National Fire Prevention Day 

The Robles Firewise Group is sponsoring a Chipper day: Saturday July 24th.

This activity, also known as a “Fuel Reduction Effort”, offers any resident of Robles del Rio to have tree trimmings chipped and removed from their property. If you want to keep your chips you can, if you want us to remove them we will. (we strongly suggest - as all fire safety related agencies do - that you DO NOT PUT wood chips within 5 feet of any structure).

Reducing fuel, particularly within 30’ of your home (or up to 100’ of your home if you have that much space), is a crucial step in “hardening” your property against wildfire risks.  When clearing your property of fire-fuel, a common and significant expense is the cost of disposing of the piles of wood/brush, or the time and effort it takes to dispose of it in your yard waste container. Our sponsored Chipper days will save you the cost of having to pay someone else to remove it, and/or the effort of cutting down everything to fit into your bin over weeks or months.


You will be asked to supply your name, email address, street address, and phone number. You will then be advised on how to prepare the materials for the chipping process (how to stack the branches; no poison oak, vines, Genista or palm fronds allowed etc.). A minimum donation of $10 is suggested to defray equipment and service fees.
