Pile Burning and Chipping

pile and slash burning #1Slash is the left over tree limbs, tops and other residue left by logging activities. Slash piles are disposed of by burning or chipping.

Pile burning: Slash is piled together and burned during safe conditions, usually during the winter after it has been left to season (dry). Burning is generally done during very wet periods or with light snow cover in late fall or early spring.

Pile Chipping:  Slash is disposed of without risk of fire hazard and/or smoke concerns. The slash is either hand or machine fed depending on location and density.

Apex has been in charge of many Pile Burning and Chipping projects throughout BC. We supply crews and equipment as required for each contract.
