Environmental sustainability has never been more important. Urban recycling at A Plus is taking on the age-old challenges of eliminating landfill usage, recycling natural resources, operating as sustainable tree care, and being environmentally responsible wherever possible. We are leading in our woodchip to biochar conversion operations, and enriching our soils through chips and mulching. Urban Sustainability is one of the core priorities and goals in A Plus’ annual strategic planning and urban forestry summits.
As part of our zero-waste initiative, we are looking at every angle in our tree care operations to become more ecologically balanced and be a net positive force in all our practices.
In our tree care operations, we generate thousands of tons of wood waste a year. Typically, much of this ends up in the landfills. Through our in-house milling operations, our Biochar Technology Initiative and our mulch processing facility, we are diverting this waste, sequestering carbon in several ways, and being part of the solution.
