  • Wood chips and soil fertility

    I am in need of chips. Wood chips, that is.
    I grew up being warned about using fresh wood products as mulch or soil amendments because, in theory, as the wood broke down it would tie up valuable nitrogen, stealing it away from the plants.

    I have found that wood chips make an excellent soil conditioner and weed suppressant (almost more critical this year).
