Wood Chips: the Basics

What Are Wood Chips?

Wood Chips are generally small bits of wood as the result of chipping pieces off of a larger piece of wood. With the right equipment, every part of a tree can be turned into chips. Once the wood has been turned into chips, it is easier to transport and easier to sell due to its small size.
