About this listing
Forest Mulch has been processed through a wood chipper with sharp blades cutting up tree material into small chips of wood. Our Aged Forest Mulch is this product which has been left to age or “cook” as we refer to it for three months prior to selling. During this cooking process, our mulch will reach temperatures well above 70 degrees even in the middle of winter! It is also turned over several times. Fresh Forest Mulch contains tannins which are extremely harmful to young plants and even mature trees. Fresh Forest Mulch will absorb valuable nitrogen from your soil – properly aged forest mulch will not. Throughout this 3 month process, harmful tannins are leached from the mulch and unsightly leaves are turned into compost. The end result is a product which has a pleasant earthy smell and feel, allowing your plants to simply flourish!
