As we clean up the property and work on hardening our home against wildfire, we end up with piles of sticks everywhere! And the question most people want to know…what do you do with it?
The short answer – chip it, or burn it!
Any sticks that are too big to fit in our chipper also means they are thick enough to possibly make good lumber if in good shape.
Anything 3″ in diameter or smaller gets put into the chipping pile.
And the rest gets burned! Pine needles, pine cones, sagebrush, sticks that would clog the chipper.
