Got Screened, Soft-Hardwood, Sawmill Chips?
I have a market in the Canton, Ohio area that is looking to buy clean, screened sawmill chips from soft-hardwood species such as Yellow Poplar, Soft Maple and Cherry. They prefer them to be delivered in a walking-floor trailer, otherwise they will have to be unloaded with a front-end loader. If you want them to contact you to discuss and get pricing, send me your contact information in an email to brad@ohioforest.org or give me a call at 888-388-7337, and I will forward it to them.

  of planting large areas up to 150 times more effective. Read about this innovative
  technology.
