Wood chips are great for reduction in weed growth, saving your time, and your back! They are also great for composting in the garden as well as your trail paths. There are many opinions, good and bad, of composting chips in your yard. Here is some local research from Linda Chalker-Scott, Ph.D. on the matter. This info is from Master Gardner Online. Linda is a wonderful resource on this subject.

Here is the “Truth” about wood mulch.

Our loads, like most arborist chips, are a mix of conifer and or deciduous trees. Both are great for your property. We do not guarantee specific species or no needles in our loads. A full load of chips will equate to about 12 yards. We usually deliver once we have filled the truck. There is a $75.00 charge for a load of chips. Since the delivery will be via an arborist dump truck, we can back into any area that has solid ground and can fit the truck. We will deliver chips in a relatively close radius to our job location that day.

Where would you like the chips? Your drop site must be accessible to the crew. Make sure there aren't cars parked in the drop site during the day. Check for low overhead lines and tree branches that the drop box would hit as it's being raised. Arborist trucks are heavy. If your driveway is thin enough, it could crack from the weight of a large truck. Any damage to your driveway or yard as a result of equipment is the responsibility of the property owner, not Canopy Solutions LLC. Leave a marker on the place where you want the chips dropped. This can be a tarp, a cone, or a six pack of beer.

Can I get a half load?   Nope. You have to accept the whole truck load, roughly 12 yards.   Can I request 'no leaves'?   Nope. You should expect leaves and pine needles in your delivery.   I only want 'clean wood chips'.   I don't know what that means, but this is probably not the right service for you. You should find mulch from another source.   How do I make sure I only get one load?   We automatically take everyone off the list after each delivery attempt.   But I don't want to get bumped to the back of the list!   There's no order or priority to the list. Arborists don't deliver to sites based on how long they have been waiting. Chosen sites based on who is closest to them and whether or not they're willing to accept logs.   How do I speed up my delivery?   By accepting a few logs, not being too picky or specific in your description, and making sure your  site is set up properly  .   I don't want any mulch that is poisonous to my dogs or horses.   It's up to you to know which species of wood chips are toxic to your animals. Most animals who are fed a proper diet will not consume plants or wood chips that are toxic. Well, Labs probably will. But other than Labs, most animals are smart enough not to eat poisonous wood chips. Please consults your veterinarian, and list any species that you don't want in your profile.   I heard that it's bad to mulch thicker than 2".   This is probably true with decorative or store-bought mulches. This isn't a problem with arborist wood chips. They won't compact and create a water barrier like some mulches do, and you don't need to till or cultivate arborist wood chip mulch like you need to with some decorative mulches.   How do I take myself off the list?   You can cancel your request by email, if you have a pending request.
