The Council has begun services for the 2022-2025 CalFire grant program!

Contact our office to be placed on the waiting list or submit your request via the "Interested in chipping" form "button" lower on this page.


To qualify for the chipping program, customers must meet the following guidelines:

  • Must be a resident of Mariposa County

  • Brush must be piled along a route of ingress/egress that a truck towing a chipper can access.  Debris must not be piled along any County road for chipping.

  • All cut parts of the limbs must be faced out towards the driveway

  • All piles must be within 10 feet of the driveway

  • All limbs must be no wider than 5 feet

  • All limbs shall be 6 inches in diameter or less

  • Piles must be no higher than 4 feet and free of any trash or metal

  • Piles can be of any length

*If limbs are piled incorrectly, the Fire Safe Council will not chip them.


To qualify for the brushing program, we will use the PG&E CARE Program guidelines to qualify disadvantaged residents who are physically or financially not able to maintain their 100' defensible space. If you have questions, please call 209-966-7700 to see if you qualify. This is a service that clears the 100' defensible space around an inhabited structure of larger brush, low lying limbs, and hazardous fuels.


*IMPORTANT: Cancellations MUST be made at least 3 days in advanced.
