One of the most frequently asked questions the CWSC receives is “where can I find a contractor for fuel reduction?”  The table below is an attempt to answer that question. PLEASE NOTE:  The CWSC makes no recommendation or endorsement of the contractors listed, nor do we guarentee their work in any fashion.  

Recommendations for using a contractor:

  • Know your property lines.
  • If you have a written scope of work (from a cost-share program or forester), share that with each contractor you contact. 
  • Meet with several contractors prior to making a selection.   Questions to ask:
    • Cost?
    • What type of equipment do you use? 
    • What can I expect my property to look like when you are finished?
    • When will you begin work and when do you anticipate finishing?
    • Are there things I can do myself to keep the cost down?
    • How will you dispose of excess material (what will happen to the chips if you chip the wood)?
    • Are you insured? Bonded? 
    • Do you have names of previous clients we can call or work sites we can visit?
    • When is your payment due?
    • Do you use written contracts?
