Woodside Fire Protection District's annual chipper program is in full swing. Free of charge, the District offers the use of its wood chipper to residents who go through the trouble of trimming tree branches and clearing brush to reduce the danger of wildfire.
Extra precautions are being taken this year to prevent the spread of Sudden Oak Death, says Fire Marshal Denise Enea.
The chipper travels to various neighborhoods through the summer. A schedule is posted on the fire district Web site here: Web Link
