Thanks to the extraordinary generosity of a Bonny Doon resident and the collaboration of the Resource Conservation District of Santa Cruz County and the Monterey Bay Air Resources District we are offering free brush chipping fall 2017.
The 2017 Chipper Program is a FREE fuel reduction service to reduce your community’s wildfire threat.  This program assists residents of Bonny Doon in complying with State and County defensible space regulations by providing chipping services to residents who clear vegetative fuels from their property.
BDFSC has contracted with Rohrbough Tree Service to chip vegetation removed in the creation and maintenance of defensible space at no cost to you. 
After considering the responses to last month’s announcement, we have decided to make the program open to individual landowners and less restrictive (see application).

Here’s what you need to DO:
1) Let us know that you will have piles to be chipped - print, read, complete both sides, and mail this application to 150 McGivern Way SC CA 95060 or email to:
2) Clear vegetation from 100’ around your house and along access roads to your house – for more info on Defensible Space see: http://www.scottsvalleyfire.com/Other_PDF/Living_with_fire_2009.pdf
3) Bring the cleared brush to the road before October 16th – see Do’s and Don’ts for creating your piles in the application.
4) Celebrate contributing to your home and community’s fire safety!
