Does Splintered Forest offer landscaping services?
Splintered Forest does not currently offer landscaping. 

My estimate says broadcast chips, what does that mean?
After the crew removes a tree or cuts off branches they will dispose of this material by chipping it. These chips can be disposed of by dumping them off at a trash facility, but this can be costly. The other option is to spray the chips back on to the property (broadcast). 

Is it safe to leave the woodchips on my property? Isn’t that a fire hazard?
As long as the wood chips are not left in large piles (typically no more than four inches deep) they are not considered a fire hazard.

How far should firewood be kept from my house or structure?
Firewood should be stacked uphill from any structures and at least 30’ away (outside of Zone 1).
