Mulch in compost bin

We just had a stump grinded in our yard and I'm wondering if some of that fine mulch can be used in our compost bin? The tree was a pine.

Thanks for writing. That should be perfect for composting --- the finer it is, the more quickly it will break down, and the sooner you can add more to make more compost.
