The tree mulch is a mixture of limbs, leaves and pine straw from various trees that have been shredded. The mulch is typically aged which gives it a darker color. This mulch is very coarse. Due to the size of the mulch we do not recommend it be used near any wooden structures because it could give termites a foothold.
Typically, this mulch is used in natural areas, trails, or areas where the mulch is away from the home.
