Community Chipper Program

Funding is available from the Mendocino County Fire Safe Council for Sherwood Corridor residents to chip brush and branches removed near homes.

Reducing fire fuel

The Mendocino County Fire Safe Council (MCFSC), under its fiscal sponsor the Mendocino County Resource Conservation District (MCRCD), has developed a Countywide Community Chipper Program. Through this program, MCFSC has reduced wildfire fuel for over 150 homes in Brooktrails. We thank the Mendocino County Fire Safe Council for funding and contracting for this important project.
