Wood Chips

Asked May 9, 2018, 7:16 PM EDT

Hi! My apartment community is planning to get a chip drop for a large number of plants, but mostly our fruit trees: apple, persimmon, fig, elderberry, etc. Can you tell me what trees should NOT be in the chip drop. The chip drop people allow is to specify what we don’t want. Thanks so much! Jennifer

Thank you for being a thoughtful user of our world's supplies.

You can use any and all wood chips as long as they are disease free.

This publication has considerable information which should prove useful to your community: "Using Arborist Wood Chips as Mulch" http://extension.wsu.edu/publications/wp-content/uploads/sites/54/publications/FS160E.pdf
