MEREDITH — Chippers has been awarded a Safety Award from the Tree Care Industry Association. This award honors tree care companies with proactive programs to address safety issues. Chippers Inc. was recognized for adopting a safety mantra; a memorable way to deliver an important and powerful safety message. Chippers “I WILL,” stands for, “I Will... Work safely, Invest in others, Learn from mistakes, and Lead by example.” This mantra has special meaning as it honors the memory of company founder Will Russell, who died in 2010. Will lived both personally and professionally by the I WILL mantra. Chippers has offices in Meredith, Concord, New London, Lebanon and Woodstock, Vermont.
