Chipping/mulching of tree debris & brash

This capital item is available where an objective is to clear a site of tree debris and brash. The scrub, branches and other timber are to be put through a wood-chipping machine. You may find the chips produced useful for path surfacing and mulching.

Wood-chipping machines vary from petrol-driven garden shredders, which can shred prunings and branches up to 75 mm, to large chipping machines which can deal with timber from 150 mm diameter to whole trees. Chippers and shredders should only be operated by trained persons
