Wood chips are free to customers throughout our service area where tree work is currently occurring, depending on availability. Our wood chips can be used as mulch; however, they are not the same quality that is provided for purchase at a local store. The wood chips PG&E offers are a by-product of our vegetation management work, chipped tree branches and shrubs. The material is coarse, not uniform and is indicative of the surrounding area vegetation.
We will deliver free wood mulch to your home or business of an unspecified amount based on truck size and work conducted that can range in load size up to 13 cubic yards, smaller loads are not available.
If you are interested in our free wood chip program, please call our Customer Service department at 1-800-743-5000 and a Customer Service Representative will collect your information and provided it to a team that will contact you back within 7 business days.
