Hubby has his eye on a wood chipper at Home Depot. We haven't gone to look at it yet so I don't know any specifics. We have multiple reasons for wanting a wood chipper: 1. Could be used for bedding in the horse stalls; 2. Make our own mulch; 3. Could be used around the barn, pasture gates, etc. when it gets muddy (which is pretty much all winter and spring); 4. Rather reuse fallen limbs, etc. than burn them up in a brush pile; 5. Can make my own fire starter nuggets; 6. All of the above may turn into money making prospects. Are these viable reasons? Is a wood chipper a good investment? Currently we have about 15 acres in trees so have a lot of limbs, etc. to clean up. We're also cleaning out some areas around the house and pastures that have been allowed to become overgrown. And, we just planted 34 acres in hardwoods. Of course, using that is a long way into the future!
