Do you have any fallen trees or branches on your property that you are looking to make good use out of? Do you want wood chips for your next landscaping project, but don’t want chemically-treated wood from the store shelf? Wood chipping is an excellent way to repurpose damaged trees and provide nutrient-dense materials for your future landscaping projects. Chipping may not be the best do-it-yourself task for everyone. It requires high-end equipment that not many everyday people have access to. Some places will allow you to rent a wood chipper. If you do not have access to a wood chipper, you will most likely need to contact a business, like us here at Dynamic Arborist, to come out and chip your wood for you.
Some wood chip mixtures include all parts of the tree: berries, leaves, branches, and even roots. Some mixtures are repurposed from old trees, some from new wood. Wood chips are an excellent source of nutrients for your soil or compost pile. They also retain water, prevent weed growth, and can help combat topsoil erosion. Wood chips simulate the environment that is found on the forest floor – which is one of the most nutrient-rich environments in the world.
Adding wood chips to your garden or business storefront can also eliminate muddy spots due to their water retention properties. They also may add that little facelift that your garden needs to elevate the landscaping or add colour-contrast in your garden. There is no question that wood chips can do your garden some good.
The process of wood chipping is pretty simple; you just add sections of wood or tree brush to your wood chipper, and you will acquire a pile of fresh wood chips. Wood chipping is an easy way to get rid of debris and repurpose tree brush on your property. Getting your hands on a wood chipper, however, can be a more difficult task.
If you do not have access to a wood chipper or don’t feel well-equipped for this type of project, give us a call. Our team is equipped with high-end equipment that gets the job done and does it well. We would be excited to help you chip wood on your property and figure out how to use it. If you don’t have an intended purpose for your wood chips or don’t want them to just sit in a pile on your property making homes for pests, we can haul the debris off of your property for you. We understand that wood chip landscaping projects aren’t for everyone.
Reach out with any inquiries. We are looking forward to hearing from you.
