Learn to Embrace Tree Service: A Tree Blog

Welcome to my blog. My name is Sarah, and right now, I can see my favourite tree from my window. A few years ago, it was ailing, but I learned everything I could about tree health and nurtured her back to abundance. In this blog, I plan to write all about tree care, from the basics you can do on your own to knowing when to call a professional. My love of trees grew out of my love for gardening and landscaping, and I may write about those topics as well. I hope that you like my blog and that it inspires you. Thanks for reading!

4 Options For Dealing With Tree Waste

Diana Jones

If you planning to have a tree removed from your property, it is important that you consider what you will do with the tree waste which is left behind. While the tree service which carries out the work will be happy to take the waste with them, this isn't your only option. Below is a guide to 4 other uses for tree waste.


Mulch is a key component of any garden as it helps to create a cover for your planting beds and prevents moisture from escaping via the process of evaporation. This helps you to reduce your water usage and can improve the germination of the plants. Tree waste can be easily turned into mulch. All you need to do is to pass the waste wood through a wood chipping machine. If you do not feel confident operating a wood chipper, you should ask the tree service to carry out this task on your behalf for an additional fee.


Composting is a great way to create an organic fertiliser for your garden. If you wish to compost larger branches and logs, you should first have them placed in a wood chipper and turned into mulch. The mulch can then be added to your compost heap. Breaking branches and logs down into small wood chips will help to speed up the composting process. Small branches and twigs can be added directly to your compost heap. You should turn the compost over using a garden fork on a periodic basis and you will soon have a supply of homemade fertiliser.


If you do not have a garden which requires mulch or compost, you may wish to use the wood waste as firewood. Log fires are becoming an increasingly popular feature in many Australian homes. Simply ask the tree service contractor to chop the tree into logs for you and store them in a dry place.


If the tree which you have had removed is healthy, it may provide timber which is ideal for home construction projects. You should ask the tree service contractor for advice about the suitability of the wood. If the wood is suitable for use as a pole, railing or plank, you should take the tree waste to a lumber yard and have it professionally cut.
