Great that you got a nice load of free wood chips. The power company came by trimming limbs the other day (the power went out and I think it was because the limbs were blowing against the power lines). I meant to go up and ask if they would dump the trimmings at the end of my drive,( they were just cutting the limbs not big trees so all the ground up limbs would have had no big chunks, but I got busy and they were gone before I realized it.

I'm now a bit leery of taking fresh chips from trees I don't know (the load I got was from healthy silver maples up the road). I think that getting a load of free fresh pine chips one year is what got the blight into my own trees...that's probly why the trees were cut down and chipped. Also, be careful of poison ivy from wild trees...learned THAT the hard way too *HA*
The end is nothing, the journey is all.
