We are happy to not only engage in tree topping or tree removal but also turn the tree wood left behind into wood chips. With our tree chipping service, we can reduce a tree of any size to high-quality chips in just a few seconds.

If we carry out this particular service on your behalf, you will be able to decide for yourself what subsequently happens to those chips. However, detailed below are just some of the uses we would most eagerly recommend for wood chips.

Applying as mulch on growing areas 

As a result of placing mulch on the soil, you can help it to retain moisture. Also, wherever on the soil you do leave mulch, it will hinder the growth of weeds — and so can prove instrumental in easing the long-term maintenance of your garden beds.

Adding to compost 

If you have created compost, you can add wood chips to it and consequently form a carbon or ‘brown’ layer that breaks down on the dirt and enriches it. The result will be a delightfully nutritious compost for plants to feast upon.

Creating walkways 

Yes, by building up deep layers of wood chips, you can create surfaces easy for people to walk on. You could particularly benefit from leaving these wood chips on uneven areas of ground since the chips could even them out as well as suppress weeds.

Temporarily filling in eroded areas 

If there are certain areas of your garden that have eroded, you could place wood chips in those gaps and so buy yourself time to come up with a longer-term remedy for the problem.

Why can wood chips be so effective in erosion control? One reason why is these chips’ ability to form a barrier that, during heavy rain, guards against soil loss.

Using as cattle bedding 

If you keep cattle but struggle to afford straw bedding, you could alternatively fashion bedding from wood chips, given how little dust they generate.
