PACIFICA VEGETATION REDUCTION CHIPPING PROGRAM

The Pacifica Vegetation Reduction Chipping Program will begin August 2021. Please see the list below for scheduled chipping days in your area.
Chipper Program
Please note that some areas may have additional chipping days based on available grant funding. North County Fire Authority and the City of Pacifica have worked diligently applying for various grants to support Wildfire Preparedness efforts in our area. As a result, the Coastal Conservancy awarded the City of Pacifica a grant to support a Pacifica Vegetation Reduction Chipping Program. Select areas throughout Pacifica have been identified to receive chipping work through the Coastal Conservancy Grant.

The Chipper Program is a fuel reduction program to help decrease our community threat from wildfire. The program goal is to assist residents in creating and maintaining defensible space around their homes.  The chipper will enable the residence to easily dispose of large amounts of fuel that surrounds their home.

The chipping will be conducted by contracted chipping crews paid by grant funds.  The North County Fire Authority asks that you stack your materials by 8:00 a.m. along the roadside no more than 7 days prior to your scheduled chipping day and we will take care of the rest. No signup or registration is required.
Chipper Program
This service is provided at no charge, but there are some restrictions. The chipper cannot chip Eucalyptus bark or poison oak. Materials cannot contain nails or screws, as it can damage the chipper and any personnel operating it. Fuels such as brush, and tree limbs are accepted, and branches with diameters up to 8″ are acceptable. Branches need to be stacked in a neat pile with all the cut ends facing the road. Piles are limited to 10 ft wide x 10 ft long. Please do not stack trimmings on dry grass, or next to trees, brush, or structures. Brush will be chipped back on site with exception of certain areas.

Please view the By Street Name list below to view scheduled dates for Pacifica Chipping Days.
