Gathering Free Wood Chips

We are always looking for wood chips as a cover around our trees and beds. 

Not only is it good as a mulch but when it is composted it will enrich our clay soils.

One day this fall, we were gathering some woodchips that were along the side of the road where trees were cut down because of the hydro lines.  A fellow saw us while driving by and stopped to ask us if we would like more wood chips as he has piles of them on his land because he has been cutting down trees around his sugar maple trees.  These wood chip piles were partly decomposed which will be of great benefit.
