Protecting the Alpine Community from Wildfire while Preserving our Environment through Education, Land Stewardship, and Vegetation Management

Improve the Efficiency of Your Chipping Events

Greater Alpine collects a considerable amount of data during its chipping events that permit it to increase the efficiency of future events.  To date it has published two papers whose results are made available here for the benefit of other fire safe councils.  By using the best practices described, significant, quantitatively-demonstrated gains can be made in a chipping program's efficiency.
