The Q&A Archives: Compost How-To

Question: How do I build a compost heap? Also I recently had some Georgia pines cut down and the stumps were ground down can the chips from the stumps go into a compost heap?

Answer: The chips can be composted but it will take a long time. I would suggest you pile them somewhere to allow them to age a year or so and then use them as a surface mulch in ornamental beds. Or you could use them as a pathway material.
