I put mine at the base of my trees. Keeps the weeds from growing, less weed-eating work for me.29 July 2017 at 11:20 pm #314144Arthur CoatesParticipant
Since I am located outside the city and have some steep terrain on my property, I use them for erosion control and walking trails…. along with most of the aforementioned uses.31 July 2017 at 11:38 am #314167Steve GilesParticipant
My chickens seem to like eating the pine wood-shavings off the workshop floor. It doesn’t seem to do them any harm, so I let them get on with it.

That is odd that they would eat them. I have never seen a chicken do that. I have seen them scratch around looking for bugs and such.

It’s not so much the big shavings as the sawdust and tiny chips of wood they seem to be going for. I’m told chickens eat sand as a digestive aid, so maybe it’s something like that.6 August 2017 at 1:47 pm #314341Richard DuffyParticipant
Small dust-like shavings can make a very good filler. All you do it mix the shavings with wood glue when you’re ready to use. I learnt that in school.

Using shavings as a fuel is carbon neutral. There is no net contribution to green house grasses12 September 2017 at 5:31 am #315857rchrismonParticipant
One doesn’t necessarily need a fireplace to benefit from chips, etc. If you can make compressed logs, there are people who will buy them. Create a dozen and batch sell them on eBay.14 October 2017 at 9:02 pm #334452Terry GandyParticipant
I plan on using my shavings to start fires in my shop pot belly stove.
