I think this cypress is quite possibly toxic to other plants I would not and do not use it as a mulch where I want to grow stuff

I 've asked the same question to the 'Garden Professor Blog '' on facebook and the response was this.

''Pretty much any tree material is great as a mulch. The sooner you use it the more nutrient value you will get.
Please see my fact sheet for more information on arborist chip mulches.

Cut down two of them and chipped them last year, they worked great. I don't think you'll have any issues.
 
Why does your bag say "bombs"? The reason I ask is that my bag says "tiny ads" and it has stuff like this:
