I got a truckload like that earlier this spring.  I used them
immediately and had not problems.  They did get very hot in the pile
until I moved them.

Subject: [NAFEX] wood chips

I recently had the good fortune of having a truck load of fresh wood
chips dumped on my property (at my request!)  They are from Poplar Trees
(tulip tree) from my neighbor's place who had several very large trees
cut down.  The guy doing the cutting said they are no good for mulching
until they compost several months because they are too acid.  I was
planning on using them on a patch that needs new chips.  But does anyone
1.  Is it true they are too acid for mulch when fresh?
2.  Does age take that problem away?
3.  Could I use them for my blueberries, as they seem to constantly need
more acid soil?
