I understand that Croydon has just had, or is just about to have, its street tree population F.S.C. certified. This means that all the arisings from the tree maintenance can be marketed as coming from a sustainably managed source.

Perhaps the Croydon Arb team could "chip" in with some info. Failing that, the company who have been involved are "Bioregional Development Group" who are in the process of setting up "tree-stations" across the country, where tree "waste" can be re-cycled, or otherwise re-used.

This sounds like the sort of thing arbs, landscapers, urban forestry teams etc have been waiting for.
Their number is 02087 XXXXXX.

Thanks to both Ken and Clive for info on burning chip as fuel.  I'm not certain that this is an environmentally acceptable option unless we can show that we are maintaining or increasing the tree populations from which the material is taken but it seem a very attractive option from the point of view of disposal of arisings.  I believe that a pilot electricity generating project is to be started in West London - or so I heard at the AA conference in Exeter.  It was also there that one speaker stated that exemption from licensing for storage of green waste required an application and was not automatic below a certain tonnage.

A couple of things:

Incorporate woodchip mulch into your planting schemes - if you do any - or better still persuade your local authority to do it. For the first time, this year we have taken chip from local contractors as we no longer produce sufficient quantities in-house to mulch our newly planted and young trees - 1000 x 2m mulch rings uses a lot of wood chip!

In relation to woodchip burners there is a company based in Sussex called 'Nordist' who produce such beasts, specialising in units to heat small businesses, farms and schools etc. It's run by a bloke called Tony Redman (01825 XXXXXX) who is both knowledgeable and approachable should anyone be interested.
