White Rock firefighters will host tree chipping by donation Jan. 3 in the Centennial Arena parking lot

Feeling chipper

Tree-chipping events are planned in Surrey and White Rock in the coming days, with many proceeds to benefit charitable causes.

With Christmas said and done, there’s still time to put those evergreens to one final good use.

Tree-chipping events are planned in Surrey and White Rock in the coming days, with many proceeds to benefit charitable causes.

At Crescent Park Elementary, at 2440 128 St. in South Surrey, funds raised through a Jan. 2 tree-chip and bottle-drive event (11 a.m. to 3 p.m.) will support Grade 7 students’ year-end camp.

Further north, Surrey firefighters’ annual tree chip is set for 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Jan. 2 at Newton Athletic Park, located on 128 Street at 74 Avenue.

In White Rock, firefighters will be offering the service by donation – and pizza supplied by Papa Murphy’s – from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Jan. 3 in the parking lot of Centennial Arena, 14600 North Bluff Rd.
