Feeling Chipper

November 10, 2017 3:05 PM

This week City Fleet, Parks and Forestry staff watched demonstrations of chipper machines from different companies.  These machines reduce entire trees to wood chips, which serve as mulch citywide.  We also sell the chips to area farmers for use as bedding for cattle.  As we continue to tackle the problem of the Emerald Ash Borer in the city, we are working to obtain the most efficient, cost effective and sustainable equipment available to help with that task. Kudos to staff for braving our cold weather for the demonstration, but I know they are used to it.
