Forest preserve offers free wood chips

By on May 14, 2010

Geneva—Back by popular demand, the Kane County Forest Preserve District will offer free wood chips to the public on Saturday, May 15.

The district will have wood chips available for pick-up from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Burnidge Forest Preserve in Elgin.
Please bring your own shovels and containers. For larger quantities, Forest Preserve staff will operate a front-end loader. Please note, nothing larger than a one-ton dump truck will be filled.

The wood chips are from hardwood trees removed throughout Kane County because of storm damage or clearing efforts. None of the wood chips are from ash trees.

Burnidge Forest Preserve is located at 38W235 Big Timber Road, Elgin. For more information, contact the Forest Preserve District at (630) 232-5980 or visit
