Is English Laurel safe to chi?
Hello, We have an overgrown laurel hedge that we would like to severely cut back. We are thinking of chipping it all once its down; leaves and all, and spread it on landscaped areas of the yard. Is this safe for other plants? We would like to do it soon (early October). Is that ill-advised? thanks so much, Margaret

- I wouldn't use it as a path mulching material unless your chipper is really sharp - I suspect any whole leaves could be slippery.
- The prussic will not acidify the soil.
