Do it yourself!
Rent your own brush chipper at a local rental store. Make sure the chipper can handle more than the diameter of the material you need to chip. Check the machine over (especially blades) and ask about any sharpening fees. Chips are OK in the landscape, but they should be at least 5 feet away from any structure (siding, decks, and wooden fences). As always, wear appropriate Personal Protective Equipment and read all safety instructions before operating heavy machinery. Click here for Safety and Health Information regarding wood chippers.
