Fostering Forest Stewardship's Triple Bottom Line
Calaveras Healthy Impact Product Solutions (CHIPS) is a local 501(c)(3) non-profit California corporation based in Amador and Calaveras Counties. 
We perform a variety of work, including forest and meadow restoration, watershed stewardship, cultural site work, fire-safe fuel reduction, and fuel break construction in the wildland-urban interface.  
We currently work under agreements and contracts with the Amador Firesafe Council, the Stanislaus National Forest, the El Dorado National Forest and numerous private landowners. 
CHIPS has purchased a former lumber mill site in Wilseyville.  In partnership with Phoenix Energy Company, we are in the advanced planning stages of constructing a 3 megawatt gasification facility to provide electricity, heat, jobs, and biochar.  The energy plant is scheduled to go online in 2016.
