To our Customers and the Community...
Slash Solutions opened August 2011 in response to the Rocky Mountain Pine Beetle Epidemic to provide an affordable, convenient and local site for slash and brood tree disposal.
Our 49 investors came together quickly to provide this much needed service to the community - opening in just under 90 days.
In our first two seasons, we have disposed of 16,000 cy of slash and log material using our Air Curtain Burner. We have also facilitated the use of semi loads of log material in a secondary market and distributed free firewood to customers across the front range, as well as locally.
It was extremely difficult to predict the actual costs we would incur for disposal and we elected to start up at a reasonable rate to encourage the community to continue to mitigate for disease, to increase defensible space and to promote fire safety.
THE WILDFIRES OF THIS PAST YEAR CLEARLY HIGHLIGHT THE VITAL IMPORTANCE OF OUR SERVICE!
However, our expenses have exceeded our income to date and we must increase our prices to cover the operational costs. We also hope very much to provide a return of some or all capital to our investors.
A number of factors have affected our bottom line significantly, accounting for 75% of our expenses in 2012:
- Quantity of Ash and Disposal Costs
- Diesel Fuel Prices
- Additional Needed Labor
We sincerely hope that you can appreciate that although members of the community freely invested in Slash Solutions, it is not reasonable for them to bear the entire cost of bringing this much needed service to benefit all of the community.
We thank you for your understanding and genuinely appreciate your support!
The Slash Solutions Management Team
