Chipping Program

The Napa Communities Firewise Foundation (NCFF), in cooperation with the Napa County Fire Department (NCFD), provides a free chipping service to all Napa County residents who live in a designated fire hazard zone – meaning most all of rural Napa. The intent of the program is to encourage residents to comply with defensible space requirements of both the State and County, in addition to being Firewise. The program is not intended for commercial activities or general land clearing.
