What are Wood Shavings?

Wood shavings (also known as sawdust) are thin, flat pieces of wood that are typically produced by a machine called a planer. They can also be produced from by-products of woodworking operations like sawing, routing, planing and milling. Wood shavings are made from a variety of types of wood, including pine and eucalyptus.

Frequently Asked Questions

As we touched on earlier, some of the most common uses for wood savings include livestock bedding, insolation and mulch. In addition, wood shavings for stables can be burned as fuel for heating, while they can also double as a soil amendment in gardens and for crops.

Can I use wood shavings as mulch? As we’ve discussed, the answer is yes! They can help to suppress weed growth, retain moisture in the soil, and add organic matter to the soil as they decompose. It’s important to use untreated wood shavings to avoid introducing chemicals into your garden.

If you’re wondering how to dispose of wood shavings, it can be done by using them for composting or as animal bedding or adding them to a wood-burning stove or fireplace. They can also be added to a landfill or used as fill in construction projects.
