BEST ADVICE FROM JOE GARDENER (this past year anyway)
Joe Gardener Recommends Shredding Your Branches. Joe has a great point that has already resonated with me in my neighborhood. Your neighborhood may have a dumping ground for the green stuff but then it just sits there…and sits there…and piles up and looks awful. We are much better served to shred and USE the remnants for our gardening and landscaping needs.
