Question Free wood chips in Frederick?

I need to get my hands on 10 yards (+/-) of wood chips for various things around the yard and garden. I looked on line and didn't see any of the local tree companies advertising that they had wood chips for the taking, everyone I found was at least an hour away. Does anyone know of a tree company in Fred Co or northern Mo Co that gives them away?

I have about 50 contractor bags full of wood chips in the backyard. The previous owners had 3 kids and a small (30'x20') play area in the back. I don't have any kids and have other plans for that spot in the yard. Take as much as you want. Might not be what you are looking for, but if nothing pans out for you shoot me a PM.

If you need more, contact Ferro's Tree Service in Mt Airy. He should be able to supply as much as you can haul.

I'm doing the Back To Eden gardening method. I just called all the tree trimmers in the phone book and asked if they had a list I could be put on for wood chips. It's hit and miss, most of them will only deliver if they are in your area. I got about 20 yards last year and another 15 this year.

I guess I could google this, but since you brought it up what is it?

Most tree companies will only dump near where they trim. No one wants to pay someone gas or time to drive. Walkersville has a free mulch pile if that works for you.

The landfill used to give it away as well. Call them.

The Walkersville mulch pile at the regional park across from Glade Valley Elem School is a GREAT place to get as much mulch as you can haul, &/or to drop off your yard, bush, & tree trimmings. It's not the filtered shredded decorative hardwood mulch you pay $5+ a bag for at Lowes or Home Depot, but it is FREE.
