The Placer County Chipper Program is a cost-share program, funded by Placer County and CAL FIRE, that provides low-cost residential chipper service for Placer County residents, incentivizes fuels reduction, and promotes defensible space adherence and fire prevention activities. For $80 / hour, residents can utilize a crew that will chip and broadcast piled vegetation. Cost-share fees may be waived for landowners who meet the “Very Low Limit” as defined by the Placer County Department of Housing and Urban Development. To find out if you are eligible for fee waivers, check out this link.
