Using wood wastes such as sawdust, bark mulch and cedar chips in compost is an excellent way to add high-carbon "brown" material.

These materials help to improve aeration and moisture retention in the compost pile, while cedar chips offer an additional benefit of natural oils that repel insects and fungi.

Furthermore, cedar chips give off a pleasant scent, making them an ideal choice for gardeners who want to keep their compost pile smelling pleasant.
