What Kind of Wood Chips / Mulch
Our free wood chips consist of green wood, pine needles and leaves (sometimes). These chips are best suited for ground cover away from the house such as unpaved driveways, mulch or compost piles, pathways, or parking areas to keep the weeds and dust down. They are a by-product of the routine trimming or removal done by Island Arbor Care. The exact ratio of wood to leaves varies with the season and the materials chipped.
What We Deliver
A typical load of chips is 8 to 10 cubic yards, or enough to cover an area of 1,080 square feet (40 ft. x 40 ft.) 3 inches deep. Delivery truck needs 20 feet of overhead clearance and 10 feet minimum width to dump. The truck weighs 15 tons (30,000 pounds). One load forms a pile of chips about 12′ wide by 6′ high.
Delivery location must be clear for chips to be delivered. We will call before attempting to deliver the chips.
A large, heavy truck will be used to deliver the chips. Please bear this in mind when planning the delivery and drawing the delivery location map. We make every attempt to deliver your chips as requested, but will not take a chance of damaging your property or ours.
The chips are delivered in a large pile. We cannot spread the chips or split a single load into two or more piles. Nor can we deliver a load smaller than the truck carries. Also, once delivered we will not pick up.
