I have recently floored our bungalow with White Oak, it had a protective layer on the top side. The planks needed planing, on the sides, width, to fit round the edge of the rooms. This left me with a large sack of the shavings. Can the shavings be either: - Added to a compost heap in small amounts, used as a mulch, or spread over the soil (I have Clay) and dug in?

Yes, wood chips that are from a kiln dried wood are safe to use right away as a mulch.
