ChippingFire Department

Each year, chipping services are offered to those homeowners who reside within the Wildland Fire Suppression Assessment District located in portions of the Foothill and Extreme Foothill High Fire Hazard Areas of Santa Barbara’s foothills. Chipping services are provided to encourage property owners to create a defensible space and provide a cost effective way to dispose of cut material. 

Next years schedule of chipping areas will be posted in our newsletter that will go out in early 2014 and will also be available online.
