Whilst I was visiting the Community Gardens of Tucson’s webpage a couple years back I noticed a link that said “Free Mulch Tucson”. It was a link to Romeo’s Tree Service which will, once you fill in your information, drop off a free load of wood chips to your home. It can take 1-4 months for the wood chips to come, so you have to do this with a little planning in mind. Additionally, as a word of caution, they can bring several yards of wood chips at once. It can be quite a lot. Make sure you tell them a location where you are okay with them dropping it. One day there were no wood chips, and the next day, there were wood chips where I told the company to drop them off in my alley.
I mostly utilized the wood chips by sifting them out into my compost. But you can use them any way you like. It took a year for me to work even half the amount that I was given into my compost. The pictures that I am posting here is less than half the amount I started with.
