Wood chipper and Desert trees
So I have a few trash trees to get rid of (mostly Mexican Palo Verde) and the odd branch or two from regular landscaping maintenance, and I'm wondering if a home wood chipper would be suitable?
I ask because I really do need the organic material and would rather pay for a tool than haul off. Would rather use wood chips than add to the waste stream.
Has anyone done this at home and with thorny trees? How did it go and were the thorns mitigated by the process or did handling the chips require care still?
Fyi I don't think any of my branches exceed 3" in diameter. Someone chopped this tree to the ground thinking it would die but instead it grew back as a 20-trunked thorny nightmare.
