The Forest Preserve District of Kane County is offering free wood chips to the public, in late April.
Wood chips will be available for pick-up at two locations from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, April 23, and Sunday, April 24, at Burnidge Forest Preserve in Elgin and also at Big Rock Forest Preserve in Big Rock.
Forest Preserve District staff will be on hand to help load with a tractor at both sites from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, April 23. Afterward, the public may pick them up on their own through 5 p.m.
Non-District machinery to load/unload is not permitted. Residents should bring their own shovels and containers.
The public is welcome to take as many wood chips as they can haul away, while supplies last.
The chips are from hardwood trees removed throughout Kane County because of storm damage or clearing efforts.
Signs within both preserves will direct people to the pile location.
