This is what happened when you give the tree guys a case of good beer for dumping you off a couple loads of wood chips. You end up with more than you know what to do with. Lol

Cow manure does an even better job!

Trajan61 Level 8 July 10, 2018

Yeah, and it's immediate, but who has that many cows?

@westvir I’ve got 600 cows and 26 bulls so I have plenty of manure.

You sure do!


Something similar happened to my property years ago. I hired a bunch of high school kids to spread it around. The end result was an ugly site but two years later, it grew everything! Best thing that ever happened.

Organic matter. What a treasure!


You got it made.

freeofgod Level 8 July 9, 2018

You can never have too much.

FrayedBear Level 9 July 9, 2018

Oh I’m wood chipping mulching everything. It will get used up. Just going to take time to do by wheelbarrow.


Get yourself a bobcat.

@FrayedBear I knew what you meant. I just love that comic


Keep it coming, spread it and before you know it you will have sorted that problem with your drainage. Tell them to stop when the whole lot is three feet deep in chips. It will eventually rot down to about 4-6 inches. Repeat process next year. A little horse, cow or sheep manure will make fine addition. Do you have a local horse racing track, pig, hen or intensive cow factory?
You then start bagging the chips and selling it to neighbours at $2 / bag! Retire in fifty years.

They were showing gratitude!


Great idea! I used to put a six-pack with the trash that the garbage men were not supposed to take...they always took anything I put out.

@MissKathleen, If I sat out beer it would be my luck the garbage guys would be fundies and they would 'forget' my trash for a few weeks ; )


Oops! Always do that after the delivery. lol

RavenCT Level 9 July 9, 2018

I did I gave them a case of beer after the second load. They ended up bringing me 4 more loads I got all but about two loads spread out and came home to this a fresh new load dumped.

@Donto101 Oh dear - I hope you have some neighbors in need! 🙂


Wow, talk about some sweat equity!


What in the wide wide world of wood chips are you going to do with that? Wow wow wow
