Hi
I recently cut a very overgrown whitethorn hedge/ collection of trees back to around 4ft high.The trees where covered in ivy and slowly falling victim to the prevailing winds. Having cut any firewood I could get out of them I am left with a large amount of thorn branches to dispose of, I was wondering if I could put them through a chipper?
If this isnt a stupid idea ,I was thinking of spreading the chips under a new hedge (bareroot planted two years ago)? or would it be a waste of time? Razz

Believe it or not just finished a job today doint this, Make sure you know how to use a chipper, do not stand directly behind it , do not use your foot to push anything into it and wear eye, ear, hand and head protection, No children allowed
