Spent vegetation is handled by putting through the Chipper/Shredder a 10 HP Yard Machine Unit. The chopped vegetation is blown onto the compost pile. The shredding speeds up composting, and reduced the labor in removing the waste in the yard. This waste is better removed before completely dry, since it shred better than when dry. The process is easy and only takes a short time to complete. One must have a sufficient quantity to justify the cost of the Chipper/Shredder. When I had a smaller yard the process use to be accomplished with a wooden block and a machete.
