Great Hawk Chip -Off! Saturday June 3, 2017

We love keeping Great Hawk tidy! We hold a chip-off once every two years at Great Hawk. We ask that all home and land owners pick up any fallen branches or extra brush and bring it to the side of the road. This year’s chip-off will take place on Saturday June 3, a week after Memorial Day. Ed Maclina and his crew will be coming by to pick up your brush on that day. Here are a few parameters to make the job go smoothly:
———-
1. Bring all brush up to the side of the road, very close and convenient for a truck w/ chipper to drive up to. Brush too far away from the road cannot be picked up.

2. Place the thick end of the branch toward the road. This makes it easier to feed the chipper.

3. Branches cannot be more than 3 inches in diameter.

4. Refrain from bringing in soft, rotten, or extremely wet branches. They gum up and render the chipper inoperable.

5. Carefully choose where on the road you’d like to place the branches, because the chipper will spit the chips back out in generally the same spot.
