Wood chips may be used in a variety of ways around a property, including as mulch and livestock bedding, yet tree services often pay landfill fees to dispose of them. With this service, homeowners and tree services alike benefit.

“Homeowners often purchase wood chips to mulch around flower beds, trees or landscaped areas of their property. The wood chips help to retain moisture in the soil, prevent the formation and spread of weeds and halt soil erosion. Depending on the amount of area to be covered by the mulch, homeowners may find they spend hundreds of dollars on this product, which may be obtained for free through local tree services,” Jason Writz, spokesperson for FreeWoodChips.net, announces.

It is important to note that some species of plants can be poisonous to animals. Be sure to learn what these species are and request that these species not be delivered if you intend to use the wood chips for animal bedding. 

“In addition, wood chips add nutrients to the soil as they decompose. This allows a tree to flourish and plants to thrive. When a homeowner finds they have muddy areas they need to cover, the wood chips are of great help as well. They prevent dirt from being tracked into the home and other structures on the residence by providing individuals with a clean place to walk,” Writz continues.

Even those individuals who don’t want to use them on their property or for livestock find they can make use of free wood chips.  Wood chips can be used as fuel in a wood stove or boiler. Others opt to include the wood chips in their compost pile, as a brown or carbon layer. Doing so boosts the nutritional aspects of the finished product.
