City’s Spring Woodchip Sale
- Friday, April 13, 2012, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
- Wood Recovery and Composting facility, 1420 E. 11th St.
- Age limit: Not available
Cost is $10 per pick up load; the price will be more for larger trucks. Patrons are asked to bring a tarp for their pickup to secure woodchips, preventing woodchips from littering the roadway when leaving the facility. Woodchips, like mulch, are helpful when it comes to the growth of newly-planted trees, when used in gardens or used in flower gardens. Spreading woodchips reduces the amount of water lost through evaporation, prevents excess run-off, restricts weed growth, and replaces valuable nutrients into the soil. The woodchip sale will close early if the supply is depleted.
