Free Wood Chips

For most of the trees we trim, we turn those trimmings into wood chips. These wood chips are available to customers, and can be delivered at your request when tree crews are in your area. 

Only full loads are available and average about 10-12 yards per load. These wood chips consist of multiple tree species, are irregular in shape and color, and can include some twigs and rakings.

For more information, call Ameren Illinois at 800.755.5000.

Why We Trim Trees

Trimming trees and managing right-of-way vegetation can prevent many - but not all - outages that are caused when trees adjoining Ameren’s easements fall onto power lines.
