Mulch

Asked September 15, 2020, 8:29 PM EDT

We live in far eastern Oklahoma where most trees are oaks. A neighbor, who cuts trees down for a living, chips a lot of his trees and then pushes it over a cliff. Would there be any problems with using his chips for mulch? Most bagged mulch out here is pine. Thanks

Sequoyah County Oklahoma

Not at all! If they are mostly oak that is fine too. Mulch from hardwoods like oak last longer than those from softwood species. Depending on how much he chips his wood it may not look as nice as commercially produced products, but it will still work just as well.
