Mulch

I have a huge pile of wood chips from silver maples that were cut down a month ago.Since then there has been a tremendous amount of rain and ice due to an ice storm.Are the chips of any use now?

You will have to compost these some first. Never use fresh wood chips, as they will steal nutrients from your plants. If anything, they are more usable now than they were fresh, but they are still not ready. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/composting/basics/compost-as-garden-mulch.htm
