Wood Chip Pricing & Availability
Orcas Biomass makes local, weed free mulch and wood chips from logs, branches, shrubs, and other woody debris from Rain Shadow Consulting jobs using our Bandit Chippers and our horizontal grinder. We chip and grind as material is available; we typically have a large supply of mulch chips available and we do our best to have log-grade fir chips and biochar blend mulch available. Cedar and alder chips are available by request with advance notice only.
Chips are available for delivery or pick-up at our shop at 3456 Orcas Rd. See below for delivery rates based on location. Pick-ups and deliveries are typically scheduled on Fridays, but we can schedule pick-ups on other days with advance notice. We can also bring a chipper or grinder to you; please contact us for details.

Due to unexpected equipment repairs, we are temporarily unable to produce cedar and alder chips. Our website will be updated as soon as we are able to chip to order again.
