Chipping Day reduces fire hazards

FALLBROOK – The Fallbrook Fire Safe Council sponsored another successful chipping day for the greater Fallbrook area on Saturday, June 3. The event was held at the corner of Alturas and Aviation roads on the property managed by Value Real Estate in San Diego and utilized the services of California Tree Service and a large dumpster donated by the EDCO facility in Fallbrook.

Additional support came from 11 Marine volunteers from Camp Pendleton who assisted in the unloading of cut branches, bushes and other vegetation from the trucks, trailers, and cars of the more than 20 community members who participated in the event.

Traffic control was provided by two members of the Senior Volunteer Patrol. In total, there were more than 33 loads of material delivered to the site resulting in more than 40 cubic yards of material being chipped.

This is the third chipping event that the council has sponsored over the past year. A total of over 100 cubic yards of material has been chipped over this period of time. This has allowed the participating community members to reduce the fire hazard on their property with the removal of trimmed brush, branches, and other vegetation.

The council is planning on sponsoring additional chipping events this fall and early spring of 2024. Additional information on these events will be forthcoming.
