2019 Village of Eagle Chipping Rules


The Village of Eagle will continue its chipping service beginning the first Monday in April through the first Monday in October, 2019. The Village does not provide tree removal services, we only provide branch and limb clean-up services. The following rules for brush chipping services are effective immediately:

  • Limbs may not exceed six (6) feet in length;
  • Limbs may not exceed three (3) inches in diameter;
  • Limbs must be piled between the curb and sidewalk at each residence and shall not be in a tangled pile (smaller limbs should be separated in an orderly fashion to allow Village employees to efficiently separate any larger pieces for purposes of chipping);
  • No piling of limbs on trees or sidewalks;
  • No stacking of limbs around trees, signs, or motor vehicles;
  • No garden vegetable plants will be permitted;
  • No entire trees;
  • No bags of leaves or grass clippings;
  • No rose bushes or other thorns; and
  • The maximum time limit for employees at an individual location is 15 minutes.

The Village of Eagle reserves the right to reject any pile if it does not comply with the requests above or if the volume appears to include the limbs of an entire tree(s). If these rules are not followed at a residence, chipping services will not be performed there. A red tag will be placed at any pile of brush that does not meet the fore-mentioned specifications. This will result in the owner/tenant taking responsibility for the disposal of their branch, limb, or tree pile(s).
