Loading the chipper

A line of uniformed wildland firefighters is lined up carrying conifer branches and woody material toward the mouth of a yellow chipper.  Chips are being shot out the left side of the machine and off the road shoulder.Image options: [ Full Size ]

Fire fighters load large branches into chipper along Hwy 410. This woody debris was pruned and cleared from the forest to make a containment line along the highway.
