CHIPPING & DEFENSIBLE SPACE SERVICES BEGIN MAY 9, 2022
The North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District is gearing up for fire and fuels reduction activities for the 2022 season.
The District will begin conducting defensible space evaluations and curbside chipping services on May 9, 2022. Requests can be made online starting May 2, 2022, at www.nlttfpd.net.
Defensible Space Evaluation requests will be contacted within two weeks to schedule an evaluation date. Chipping requests are taken as they are received and completed as crews are available, keeping in mind they respond to wildfires and may not be able to get to your chipping pile right away. Please provide all requested information on the online form to the best of your knowledge, so that we can maintain these free services.
Please ensure you are taking every precaution to protect your home from wildfire by getting a defensible space evaluation. The fire district can issue free tree removal permits for fire hazard trees, but their removal must accompany complete defensible space treatments.
