This project is designed to inform residents of the PRC 4291 regulations, help assess their need for compliance, and provide the means to convert the fuels they remove to chips for use on their properties. Residents will pile brush and timber slash (less than 6" diameter) along county roads or improved driveways. Chipping crews will remove the materials by hand and chip them back onto the property. All equipment will remain on existing roads.
