Curbside Slash Chipping Program

The SAFAHOA will be hosting its Fourth Annual Curbside Slash Chipping Program on Monday, June 29th.  The HOA Board is building on the success of last year’s event where we saw 63 out of our 95 property owners participate and removed over 1700 cubic yards of slash from the neighborhood.

How can you participate?  Easy!  This Curbside Slash Chipping and Hauling Program is designed to help you maximize your efforts mitigating your property and minimizing the time and energy spent dealing with the slash.  Invest your time into clearing out trees and brush in your defensible space zone, limbing up trees, clearing out beetle kill and dead trees, and then just get the slash and brush to the curb.  Phil and Jane Pitzer from High Timber Firewood and Logging will chip and haul the slash and brush from there.

There is NO ADDITIONAL COST to participate in this program  The HOA was awarded a grant again this year from Boulder County Forest Health in the amount of $4000 through their Community Chipping Reimbursement Program.  This is a 50/50 matching grant.  In lieu of using general funds this year our HOA will contribute in-kind match of 160 volunteer hours during our Community Workdays.  A HUGE THANKS to Boulder County Forest Health!!

Program Rules!!  There are a few guidelines that must be followed if you want your slash to be picked up on June 15th.  Please download the following PDF Slash Rules.

Unacceptable slash staging. The butts are not facing out and whole logs are thrown in the pile. This will not be chipped!
