Using chips from freshly cut trees to build lasagna bed?
for free, local tree service companies can deliver truck loads (about 20 cubic yard per truck) of "mix-chips" to residents. What they deliver are chipped leafs, branches and trunks of freshly cut trees.
Can I use them to build lasagna bed? The chipped branches are brown? and the leafs are green? Proportion of brown to green are obviously uncertain and they are mixed together unevenly. In my area, the tree can be eucalyptus, pine or even redwood. Eucalyptus can excrete poisons that can be toxic to other plants, don't they?
If these mix-chips can be used to build lasagna bed, I am thinking of (from bottom) Newspaper - Steer manure - mix-chips - steer manure - mix-chips - steer manure - straw. About 24" tall.
This will be for gardening and not vegetable, will it work?
Thanks for helping.
