It's not a good idea to do that. It will attract the insects, termites, etc... It's not treated like that you purchase from a store.

Unless it's cypress branches, it's naturally treated.

From what I gather from your post he just wants the mulch. I would just give it to him. This could start a good repor within the neigborhood. Which means maybe more jobs coming your way.

I would warn him about that, but also tell him he can have all the wood chips he wants.
