Summit County Chipping Program

Protect Your Home From Wildfire

Post Date:06/12/2017

Summit County Chipping Program

You can protect your home from wildfire with help from the Summit County Community Chipping Program. Summit County government is helping residents and property owners create defensible space by providing free chipping and disposal for branches, logs and small trees. If you clear woody vegetation from around your home and stack it in a slash pile, we’ll chip it and haul it away at no cost.

Accepted materials include trees, logs and branches up to 9 inches in diameter, free of nails and wire.  Piles must be stacked by 8 a.m. on the Monday of your neighborhood’s designated chipping week so that chipping crews can identify pile locations and plan their routes for that week.  The Schedule for the Silverthorne area is:


July 17–21

September 4–8

Ptarmigan, Silverthorne


July 24–28

September 11–15

Ruby Ranch, Willowbrook to

Golden Eagle Road


July 31 – August 4

September 18–22

Eagles Nest, Three Peaks, South Forty,

Hamilton Creek, Sage Creek Canyon


For more information, such as detailed material and pile guidelines, along with photos of good and badly stacked piles, visit or call 970-668-4140.
