Hardwood sawdust/chips sources?
    #491131 - 12/14/01 04:20 PM (15 years, 5 months ago)

Ok -

I'm looking to try my hand at some woodloving species (edibles and otherwise), and have been trying to source hardwood products.

I could buy chips/dust from FP at around $1.50/# but I'd love to find a cheaper source.

I'm wondering whether anyone here has any info on the best/cheapest source for hardwood products.

First of all, are there obvious local sources for hardwood chips/dust, preferably where one can know the quality/species of wood one is getting? (I'm in the NE, but presumably one would find similar sources anywhere, such as a sawmill or lumber company, etc.)

What about products meant for other purposes? Animal bedding? Wood chips for smokers? Wood pellet fuel? Any others?

(I found hardwood pellet fuel today for $4.00 a 40# bag.)

I'm looking to set up some beds for the spring, and want to produce spawn this winter.

Any ideas would be most helpful.


Thanks,
AE

Any of them will work, just make sure that you soak it well, preferably in hot water before using it.

I use smoke chips for spawn creation.

I found some aspen wood pellets used for rabbit cages and whatnot and on the package it says that aspen naturally contains antifungal properties and that's why they use it for animals. Why do fungi still grow on them?

Also we carry them in chips and sawdust
