Good Idea! I think buying a plastic bag of wood chips is getting near 3
dollars for a 2 pound bag about now. 

I am also thinking 4-H fundraiser.

    Here is a money-making idea for many of you fruit growers.

    I put all of my fruit tree prunings on a pile.  I have a 
chipper/shredder and I shred it all onto a tarp, then bag it up.  Yesterday 
I spent about an hour and a half shredding it.  A fellow from a local 
farmers' market buys it, bags it and sells it as smoker wood for barbecuers,

etc.  I charge him 50 cents per pound.  I did 90 pounds yesterday.  If I 
didn't own a chipper/shredder, I'd rent one from the local rent-all store.
    Before I bought a chipper/shredder, I used to load up all of my prunings

in my pick-up truck and rent a chipper/shredder right at the rent-all store 
because that was a whole lot cheaper than renting the machine and bringing 
it home to do the work.
