The best way to get fresh, natural arborist wood chips is by flagging down your local arborist when they happen to be working on your block. The second best way is to use ChipDrop.

ChipDrop lets you place a single request for arborist wood chips. We send it out to all the participating tree companies in your area, giving you a better chance of receiving one sooner. Once you get a delivery, we'll take you off the list automatically so you don't get multiple loads. If you do want another load, it's as easy as logging into your account and placing another request.

We also have a basic quality control process so you at least have some idea of the quality of material you're going to receive.

Here's how it works:

  1. Create an account
  2. Verify your contact information and address
  3. Place a request (indicate your preferences and detailed instructions)
  4. Participating crews working in your area will be able to see your request. One of them may deliver wood chips or logs next time they're working nearby.

Arborist wood chips are amazing for just about any yard project. They're arguably one of the best types of mulch you can use, not to mention they're a local, free, natural bi-product that doesn't require any extra carbon to create. You can definitely feel good about using arborist wood chips in your yard!

Arborist wood chips help retain water in your soil, keep the weeds down, and even look nice, too! To learn more about the benefits of using arborist wood chips in your yard, check out our dedicated page on the topic.
