Blackwood and Barry’s Reef Landcare Group has bought a Hansa C13 chipping machine for use by the local community.
The machine is quite robust and is capable to handling branches up to 90mm in diameter. It’s a step up from a domestic chipper and a step under a fully commercial model.
Why burn your fallen tree tops when you can chip them into useful mulch for use around your property?
Use of the chipper has these benefits:
* No smoke;
* Carbon stays in the soil;
* Mulch keeps the soil moist and healthy – protecting tree roots which helps keep your trees standing for longer.
Only members can borrow the machine, but membership is open to all and costs only $10 per year. Being a member means you are covered by insurance when using the machine.
