CHIPPING & DEFENSIBLE SPACE SERVICES TO BEGIN JUNE 1, 2020

The North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District is gearing up for fire and fuels reduction activities for the 2020 season.

The District will begin conducting defensible space evaluations and curbside chipping services on June 1, 2020. Requests can be made online starting May 25, 2020 at www.nlttfpd.net.

All requests will be contacted within two weeks to schedule a defensible space evaluation or curbside chipping date. Please provide all requested information on the online form to the best of your knowledge, so that we can maintain these free services. Please keep in mind, that the chipping crew does respond to wildfires and may not be able to get to your chipping pile right away.

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.
