Free curbside chipping service in Vail
VAIL — The town of Vail will again provide a free curbside chipping service to assist with defensible space protections on private property. The service is available beginning this week and will include chipping for trunks, limbs and slash up to 24 inches in diameter. The town has a dead tree ordinance that requires property owners to remove dead or diseased trees. The chipping service coincides with the return of a six-person seasonal wildfire crew that will assist with tree cuttings on public property, pile burns and other forest health projects. The crew will also be available to perform free Firewise property assessments.
To schedule a property inspection or to arrange for the chipping service, contact Tom Talbot with Vail Fire & Emergency Services at 970-477-3509.
