A: CUSP is committed to fuels reduction in and around our watershed. We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit experienced in forest health and mitigation. CUSP is not a professional chipping service. The program is designed to assist property owners; we work with you, not for you.  Your participation is important.  In order to keep the program viable, it is necessary that as many folks as possible be on site to help carry slash to the chipper. We are here to work with you and your assistance is important on your chipping day.
