Community Chipper Program

Funding is available from the Mendocino County Fire Safe Council for Sherwood Corridor 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.  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 info@sherwoodfirewise.org!
