The "mulch" at our township public works center is chopped up branches and sticks.  They still look like branches and sticks, although now in 2-4" lengths and up to about 1" diameter.  I've used it, once. Not really what I'm looking for in my veggie, or flower, garden.

I don't have much access to newspaper anymore, and I was never comfortable with the dyes anyway.  My fall leaves have all decomposed or blown away.


Have you looked into chipdrop? It’s an online service set up to give arborists a place to get rid of wood chips without having to pay the dump.

To me chipping waste wood adds value and so a wood chipper is a valuable piece of equipment.

I’m of the same mindset. I have plenty of wood on my property, I chip it, I burn it, I bury it, I even sell it. I love my wood chipper, probably the best 5k I spent.
