Eucalyptus Hills Chipping Day

Eucalyptus Hills, CA - 

On Saturday, August 13, 2011, the Eucalyptus Hills Fire Safe Council held another successful community chipping day. The event allows local residents to drop off brush and other vegetation that would otherwise add fuel to a potential wildfire.

A record total of 117 loads of brush, branches, and cuttings were chipped into mulch that homeowners could then use as ground cover. This event was funded through donations collected at previous chipping day events and supported by the Eucalyptus Hills Landowners Association.

trimmings from a fire hazard reduction project.

A record number of loads (117) were dropped off at the community chipping day event
held at the former Eucalyptus Hills Elementary school.
