Organic Composted Mulch

At Maple Hill we grind and compost all of the tree parts (from our pruning and removal operations) that can’t be recycled as lumber, live edge slabs or furniture. We consider our mulch organic because there are no additives or dye.

Our composted mulch is packed with nutrients and beneficial bacteria and fungi, such as Mycorrhizae. These enriching nutrients become readily available to the tree’s root systems, thereby improving health and vigor immensely. When used over a period of time, mulching reduces your maintenance efforts and cost.

We are proud to be affiliated with Gro-Bark, a sustainably-sourced mulch and soil supplier that acquire brush from us. Gro-Bark is known for purchasing only by-products of sawmill and forestry operations. Gro-Bark does not support the cutting of trees and harvesting of wood material for the sole purpose of mulch production. They help us ensure nothing that comes into our yard goes to waste here at Maple Hill!

“It’s like bringing a handful of the forest floor to the urban tree.”
