The latest storms to hit Quebec this winter caused a lot of damage and havoc. Several trees fell and branches were torn off.
Now that spring has arrived, it’s time to clean up after Mother Nature, but how do you get rid of fallen tree branches? By shredding them!
Chipping branches is an interesting option for getting rid of broken branches. A team will come to your site with a specialized machine that shreds branches to clear up clutter.
It’s an efficient, environmentally-friendly way to clean up your grounds, as the chips produced by the machine can be reused in a variety of ways. More on this later in the article.
Why mulch tree branches?
Branches that have fallen after a storm or strong winds are a nuisance and prevent you from enjoying your property to the full.
They can quickly become a source of worry and accident, especially if young children are playing nearby.
Here’s why it’s a good idea to chop up any tree branches that have fallen in your yard.
Picking up all the fallen branches on your property can be a long and tedious job. Why do it yourself?

Chipping the branches will also allow you to reclaim the space lost because of that pile of wood that’s been lying around for… how long already?
Your garden will look much neater, and you’ll finally be able to use that long-lost space for a pond, pergola or children’s play area.
You’ll be glad to have this long-abandoned piece of land back!
The branches will also eventually rot, making them attractive to a number of invasive species that will be delighted to make them their home. This is the case, for example, with carpenter ants.
They’ll have a merry feast with the branches left behind, and once the feast is over, guess where they’ll head next? Most likely in your home!
So a simple pile of branches can turn into much bigger trouble, so it’s best to deal with them before they decompose.
Hiring a company to chop up the branches on your property
will save you from having to hire an exterminator to get rid of unwanted critters, which can be a much more persistent problem.

Depending on your wishes, you can ask the shredding company to leave the wood chips on site for you to reuse, or you can ask them to dispose of them completely.
To help you decide, here are some ideas for reusing wood chips:
Chipping tree branches is a sensible solution because it’s a wood processing method, and the waste produced can have another life.
It’s up to you to decide what to do with it!
