Chippers were here!


Wow!  We were impressed to see the fine job the chippers did yesterday.  They chipped many piles we’d prepared of downed branches from that May storm.

The chipping crew were a pleasure to deal with.  As they worked, they often moved the shoot that sprays the chips.  That way, the chips sprayed out as ground cover so no chip piles were left to deal with.  We had a few logs by the piles we’d planned to cut for firewood.  At the end of the day, they were bucked up and ready to dry for firewood next year.

We still have lots more clean up to do.  The chipping crew told us to get the piles ready, go on line, re-register, and they will be back.

Do YOU have clean-up to do?  There is still time to get in on the free chipping grant as long as the funds last.

Mountain locals are available to do the ground work.

Also, there is DEAD TREE REMOVAL, 50% share of cost PREP WORK available to improve 100 feet of defensible space around your Palomar Mountain home. Keep reading…
