Fresh wood chippings are great for paths, but I have been told fresh is not good for mulching, because it doesn't have what is necessary to kick-start the decomposing process. Best to heap them together and let nature do her thing, the longer the better.
Once they are rotting, you can mix with well rotted horse muck for humus. Or mix with that most precious of stuff -home made compost, which makes the compost go further too.
