Why pay for expensive home depot mulch when you can have free arbor mulch?

Arbor-Mulch is a program of A Plus Tree, created to offer clients and partners free repurposed wood chips and leaf litter to maximize urban recycling and environmental sustainability!

What is Arbor Mulch?

Arbor-Mulch is a mixture of wood chips and leaf litter. The leaf litter mixed in will decompose in 1-2 weeks. The benefits of mulch are is it adds valuable nutrients to the soil mixture. The kind we offer typically comes from trees we have just cut, but can also be 1-2 weeks after cut time. When freshly cut, it is typically moist and warm.

Our mulch is typically meant for covering soil areas and is unprocessed, undyed/colored, and can include twigs in length between 3-9″, leaf litter, small rocks, though typically very few. The kind you purchase from a store can be very expensive and is highly processed to make them uniform in color and size. Store-bought mulch typically has most nutrients removed through the processing procedures, but also “look” more consistent in shape and color.
