Free Drop Off Chipper Event!

Warring Park 802 Orchard Road, Piru, CA 93040

February 12th, 2022 9am-2pm

Keep all piles free of rocks, dirt, wire, lumber, spiny plants, and poison oak. The chipper cannot chip palm fronds, succulents, pine needles, or leaves.

  • Recently removed vegetation will chip better than old dried-out branches and shrubs.

  • The chipper can handle material up to 7″ in diameter (no root balls). The equipment does not chip individual branches that are small (rakings) or old-decayed wood well.

The time you spend cutting and stacking material for chipping is used for an “in-kind match”. Meeting match requirements for this grant will help us to obtain future funding to continue this program. Please be as accurate as possible in reporting your time.

New Programs

County-wide CWPP

We are working to update the Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) to provide a roadmap of actions for communities to address the wildfire threat. It will prioritize fuel reduction activities and recommend measures to reduce the ignitability of structures.

Wildfire Prevention in Piru

Reducing Wildfire Risks in Piru will work with vulnerable homeowners and residents to become more fire resilient, safer, and better prepared to withstand wildfire through fuel abatement work, chipper days, Home Ignition Zone training and assessments, and outreach to vulnerable populations.

COSCA Wildfire Prevention

The Greater Conejo Valley Area will become more fire resilient, safer, and better prepared to withstand the threat of wildfire through multiple projects including HIZ training and assessments, chipper events, and virtual webinars on wildfire preparedness.
