The Town of Truckee Department of Public Works, in conjunction with the Truckee Fire District, maintains Town of Truckee right of ways.
The goal of the Town of Truckee Brushing and Chipping program is to enhance fire suppression, eliminate root growth that will damage the road structure, maintain safe sight distances, prevent drain blockage, clear right-of-way hazards to plow equipment, and prepare snow storage areas adjacent to the road surfaces.
Crews will be removing and or thinning brush, trees and limbs from roadsides, ditches and drainage easements in accordance with criteria approved by the Town of Truckee town council. Town Staff works hard to minimize the impact from chipping and brushing operations from both a convenience and aesthetic point of view.
If you have any questions regarding the Town’s “Brushing and Chipping “ program, please call the Town of Truckee Department of Public Works at (530) 582-7707 and town staff will be happy to answer your questions.
