These is saw dust from a carpenter that is plaining non treated cypress. And there is a lot of it? We have been putting it to a trailer and distributing to the ground as the trailer hits bumps it flys out to feed the soil. But if it would benifit the garden or orchard more I would use it there... What do you think...

Ok seems there is a tread on this... Not a good idea for either I'm afraid. Don't want to steal the nitrogen out of the garden or the orchard.

In my experience, cypress mulch will support a lot of mycelial growth, so I would say go ahead and use it.
