My husband and I had an old house torn down and we saved a lot of 2-3 inch planks of wood. We think they are probably pine since it came from the late 1800's to early 1900's. We just planted a wide assortment of fruit trees and are planning on chipping up the old wood and using it for mulch around the trees. Will this poison or harm the trees?
I do not see that being an issue, assuming the boards are not treated with varnish or stain.
