Like fish bait on the eastern end of the state I've got a bazillion ash trees ready to go down (or already down)
My neighbor was kind enough to sternly remind me of a 2007 burn ban for brush etc on private property - campfires 4 ft x 3 ft permitted, no debris/garbage etc.
I'm looking to create some chips to put in landscaping beds, on trails, as trim, and cushioning under a swingset.
Wife like's black mulch, that's what we've always bought : is there an easy way to dye home made chips en masse?
Also, there's probably as much twig content (ie 1/8" to 3/4") as there are limbs that come down regularly.
Will a PTO driven chipper turn the small stuff into chips? Do I need a shredder for that subset of material? I have a fair amount of small stuff and too much to burn without drawing attention - also I do the burns infrequently so it tends to collect.
I know a lot of people use the shredder component for leaves, garden waste, etc. I think I would just mow over that stuff and I do have a mulching kit for my mowing deck.
I also know that combo chipper/shredders tend to have smaller capacities, and I don't believe there are any with hydraulic automatic feeders.
