I have a small chipper and I can put a lot of wood in it only to get a few chips. That's the only reason I've found wood chips to not be practical. I've even talked to local tree guys about dumping chips here with no success.
Broadcast seeding and harrowing sounds like a good idea except the "scrub" I meantioned is woody and really hard to deal with. I forget the name of the plant but it's something the power company planted to keep erosion down. It has such a tough and deep root structure I've had a tough time digging it out.
Should I mix all this stuff together and put out the rows this fall or wait until spring? Same question with the chicken tractor.
