Curbside Chipping Program offers free services through October

Free Chipping Service

Lake Valley Fire Protection District would like to encourage homeowners to take advantage of its free curbside chipping service through the 2017 field season.  The chipping crew is actively responding to requests and will be available through the end of October, weather conditions permitting. This free service assists homeowners by converting slash and cut limbs into wood chips for use on their property.  This action reduces flammable vegetation and helps homeowners create defensible space to protect their property from the threat of wildfire. Services of the Lake Valley Curbside Chipping program are offered to district residents of El Dorado County, City of South Lake Tahoe, Fallen Leaf, and Alpine County. 

*** We are happy to announce the addition of the City of South Lake Tahoe to the chipping program this year.

Lake Valley FPD encourages any homeowners who have received a Fire Defensible Space Inspection this summer to complete fuel reduction recommendations while they are still pertinent and before snow falls this winter.   By taking advantage of free curbside chipping, fire defensible space work is more convenient and cost-effective for homeowners.           

It is important to have a properly stacked and located pile to help maximize crew efficiency.  Instructions are provided on Lake Valley FPD’s website (  When your pile is ready to be chipped, contact Lake Valley Fire Protection District at 530-577-CHIP (2447) to be added to the chipping schedule.  Lake Valley FPD’s free curbside chipping program is funded by Tahoe Network of Fire Adapted Communities Grant in conjunction with the Tahoe Resource Conservation District.
