Community Chipper Program

Funding is available to Brooktrails owners to chip and remove brush and trees near homes.

Update December 10, 2020: Chipper Days in Brooktrails was a success! Over 100 homes were served and tons of wildfire fuel removed from our neighborhood.  We thank the Mendocino County Fire Safe Council for funding and contracting for the project.  We are not sure about funding for future Chipper Days.  Let us know of your interest should funding become available. Survey:How was your experience with the Chipper Day? How many hours and how much money did you spend in preparing the material for the Chipper Day? Email your response to!

Reducing fire fuel

The Mendocino County Fire Safe Council (MCFSC), under its fiscal sponsor, the Mendocino County Resource Conservation District (MCRCD) is developing a Countywide Community Chipper Program. Please contact MCFSC to get more information or to be put on the list of property owners that would like to participate in this program. Sherwood Firewise Communities will continue to organize funding that is available to Brooktrails residences. SFC is working with these other agencies to help clear high risk brush and trees near homes, roads, and power lines.
