Purpose of Mulch

Mulching is one of the most beneficial practices a homeowner or business can use to better the trees in their landscape. Mulch, when placed over the soil's surface, helps to maintain moisture and improve soil conditions. However, improper mulching techniques can lead to a negative impact on the health of a tree.

Benefits of Proper Mulching:

  • Helps to reduce soil moisture loss caused by evaporation.
  • Helps to prevent weed germination and growth.
  • Protects the soil, insulating the roots from extreme hot and cold temperatures.
  • Can improve soil aeration, biology, drainage, and structure (soil particle aggregation) over time.
  • Can improve the soil's fertility as the mulch decomposes.
  • Reduces the likelihood of tree damage caused by lawn mowers and weed whackers.
  • Inhibits certain plant diseases.
  • Gives plant beds a consistent, well-maintained look.

In a natural forest environment, tree roots are anchored in rich, aerated soils full of soil microorganisms and essential nutrients. The soil is blanketed by organic materials, leaves, and living organisms that recycle and replenish nutrients. This environment is optimal for mineral uptake and root growth. New developments and urban landscapes, however, are typically harsh environments with a reduced organic matter, low-quality soils, and large fluctuations in moisture and soil temperature. Applying 2- to 4-inches of organic mulch can emulate a more natural environment and improve plant and tree health.

Mulch Quality

ArborNature was founded and continues to operate on respect and admiration for the natural environment. We understand our duty to customers and the community to take every step necessary to minimize our impact on the world around us. All of ArborNature’s raw mulch materials comes directly as a recycled by-product of our own tree care division. Instead of ending up in a landfill, all trees and branches removed by ArborNature go on serving a purpose long after they’re dead and gone.

We take great pride recycling 100% of all of our green waste, from leaf to trunk, and turning it into useable products such as topsoil, and decorative mulches. We know exactly what materials are coming into our wholesale nursery, and we are committed to using only the highest quality tree wood fiber in our mulch recycling process. ArborNature never uses substandard raw materials such as ground up 2’x4’s, pallet wood, or construction debris that may be contaminated with chemicals and nails. When it comes to ground landscape mulch, no one else does quality like ArborNature’s wholesale nursery.
