Wood Chips

Wood chips have long been thought of as a valuable source of renewable energy. Wood biofuels – with the exception of pellets and briquettes – are far less processed than most materials, thus significantly reducing their impact on the environment. Many people use wood chips for landscaping purposes, gardening, playground surfacing and barbecuing. Alongside the allure of its affordability, availability, and environmentally-friendly label, the versatility of wood chippings make it an extremely popular biomass fuel.

There are two types of wood chip: hardwood chip and softwood chip. Hardwood chippings are made up of robust hardwood materials that will not break down without a fight. Softwood chippings are less dense than hardwood chippings and are made up of higher quality mixed softwood that is safer and frequently used in outdoor play centres.

As mentioned, biomass wood chippings are an extremely sought after product and can be used for a variety of purposes. Check out our cheap wood chippings for sale here!

Did you know that mushrooms are wholefully enriched with nutrients and provide cleansing properties to garden soil?

BBQ Wood Chips

If you’re a BBQ connoisseur, then you are likely to be aware of the popular trend of BBQ smoking. Wood chips can be used to enhance the smoky flavouring of barbecued meats and vegetables and different types of woods can create different types of flavour. Hickory wood is intended to provide a smoky bacon style flavouring, whereas apple wood can provide a sweeter taste. Try this method out and impress your friends at the next big summer shindig!

Play Areas - Wood Chips For Flooring

Wood chippings are useful to apply to playgrounds as the material is softer, stable and can cushion accidental (and often inevitable) slips and falls. In play areas where there is a critical fall height of four metres, it is crucial as a safety measure that wood chips of a minimum 300mm depth be implemented as a surface in order to cushion the impact of a fall. Wood chips and bark also add a natural feel to a play area and can withstand turbulent weather conditions.
