    Searching said shaveings were bad and not for use in a healthy enviroment. Does this also apply to grown trees. In the yard which ends 15 yds from the back door is a line of trees.My dog fence is at about 10 yrds. can I put a second coop there or will i have issues with the trees?

    Live trees or sawn boards are perfectly fine.

    Cedar shavings are OK too-- the kind you buy in the bag. They have been kiln dried & not harmful.
