City offers large tree chipping

City residents with large branches piling up in their yard can take advantage of the city's branch-chipping service.

Branches must be loosely stacked, with their cut ends together, at the curb by 7 a.m. Friday, Feb. 13.

In the past the city only accepted small branches, but this year it has reversed its policy. Because small branches jam the tree-chipping machines, the city will now accept only large branches, with a diameter at least five centimetres and longer than 1.2 metres.
