Last Week to Sign-Up for the Slash Chipping Event!
September 17th is the deadline to sign up for the slash pick-up and chipping event to be held on Saturday, October 1st from 9 am to 1 pm. If you wish to participate, sign up by emailing your name, address, email and phone number to the event coordinator, Bob Grimm at firstname.lastname@example.org
All properties in Crescent Park are eligible. If you want slash chipped it is requested that you volunteer for as much of the event if you are able to. The more volunteers we have, the quicker we can get this done! Please stage your slash by September 24th.
HOW to prepare your slash piles:
Slash must be easily accessed from the road. The pile must be within 10 feet of the road. Please keep slash out of the drainage ditches. Property with roads on two sides of their lot can place slash to be removed from either roadway. Please try to place slash where the roadway is widest to keep roadway open during chipping.
Slash must be piled at the roadside with the butts of the branches towards the roadway so it can be easily grabbed and fed into the chipper.
Consolidate your piles as much as possible. Piles can be up to 5 feet in height. The less the chipper needs to move, the faster your pile can be processed.
Conifer slash, branches and treetops ONLY - NO STUMPS OR LOGS > 4 INCHES diameter.
We will NOT be accepting logs > 4 inches, chunk wood, decayed wood, pine cones and needles, grasses or noxious weeds.
Having your slash stacked by September 24th will allow us to drive around and accurately assess the chipping time needed to complete the project. If you wish to stack more items after that date, please let the coordinator know to get prior approval.
