Chip Truck Replacement


Our current chip truck is ready to be replaced.

Our chip truck is showing its age.  It is heavily used each year with all of our projects.   It is the truck that our chipper fills when it runs.  Chips fill the back of the truck, we then transport the chips and dump them.   We purchased the truck a number of years ago and it has received regular maintenance.   The wear and tear on the truck is causing holes in the body.   It is time to replace our truck to maintain our level of safety for our volunteers and to avoid costly maintenance expenses in the future.

2018 Info

A New Truck can be purchased with your help

We are raising funds to purchase a new truck.

Update..We are down to the last 15,000 of the funds needed!

Unfortunately vehicles of this type are expensive,  we are looking to raise 50,000 in a very short period of time.   If you would like to enable us to continue to serve Central Iowa we ask you to consider a donation towards the truck.
