Need Wood Chips?

Fill out the form below to request a load of free wood chips dropped off at your property. 

Quality:

Due to the nature of our work, we cannot guarantee the “kind” of wood chips that will be delivered. Every truckload is different and may contain:

  • Wood chips

  • Sticks

  • Leaves

  • Pine needles

  • Various biological fill found in trees and shrubs

 

Timeline:

We will do our best to get you a truckload of chips within a month, but we might not be able to because:

  • You live too far from where we work or are working

  • Demand is too high

  • It’s the off-season

 

What to Know Before Receiving Chips:​

  • Make sure the drop site is big enough. No less than 8′ wide, and 15′ long, with room for the truck to maneuver. The chips will spill out on all sides, so make sure to barricade or move any delicate plants, pots, yard art, garden gnomes, etc., that might get buried.

  • Make sure there aren’t cars parked in the drop site during the day.

  • Check for low overhead lines and tree branches that the drop box would hit as it’s being raised. They can go up pretty high, about 20′.

  • Leave a marker on the place where you want the chips dropped. This can be a tarp, a cone, or a six pack of beer.

  • Include a secondary drop site in your description, in case the crew is not able to drop them at your first choice. (e.g. ‘If you can’t drop them in the driveway, drop them on the side of the road in front of the house.’)

  • Arborist trucks are heavy. If your driveway is thin enough, it could crack from the weight of a large truck. Any damage to your driveway or yard as a result of an arborist’s truck is the responsibility of the property owner, not Clifton Tree Service.

  • Clifton Tree Service is not liable for any damage to persons or property related to the delivery of wood chips or logs. Clifton Tree Service is not liable for fees, fines or penalties associated with any delivery of a load of wood chips.

  • A typical load contains about 50% wood chips and 50% green, leafy material or pine needles. About 5% of the load is often unchipped brush, small sticks, and maybe a few scoops of dirt, gravel or trash.  There is always a small amount of material at the end of a job that the chipper won’t accept for one reason or another. In order to make this service viable, a small amount of random debris should be expected in each load. Just chuck it in your refuse bin.

If you agree to the above, please fill out the form below and know that we will do our best to get you a truckload of chips!
