More About Free wood chips available at Blackwell nursery May 11 and 18

Mulch provides many benefits and beautifies gardens

The public is invited to pick up free wood chips while supplies last on Saturday, May 11 and 18 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Forest Preserve District of DuPage County’s native plant nursery at Blackwell Forest Preserve, 29W218 Mack Road in West Chicago.

Homeowners may bring vehicles no larger than a pickup truck to take mulch; contractors are not allowed. A District employee will be on hand with a tractor to help fill trailers or truck beds. People who want smaller amounts should bring their own containers. Allow enough time to load your vehicle and exit the nursery by 1 p.m.

The nursery entrance is on the south side of Mack Road about 0.5 mile east of Route 59. For more information on the free wood chip pickup, call 630-876-5920 weekdays from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Wood chips are a great natural way to add nutrients to your soil, keep soil moist, prevent soil erosion and inhibit weeds. Organic mulches break down over time and contribute to soil health.

The District makes its own mulch from dead trees and tree and brush trimmings and uses it for trails and landscaping throughout the forest preserves. When it has more than it needs for a season, it makes the mulch available to the public.
