Wood & Mulch Recycling

Return Home

Wood MulchStems and branches arising from tree removals may be retained intact, utilised (e.g. by woodchips) or stored for composting and/or mulching, or converted into a useable product (e.g. firewood), preferably on site.

Retaining arisings on or near the site can have conservation benefits and allows the gradual recycling of the mineral nutrients and carbon that they contain not to mention potential cost savings resulting in a more affordable tree surgery service.

Before any tree surgery commences, it can be agreed what is to happen to the arisings (e.g. retained or removed from site). Any arisings to remain will be stored safely and neatly in an appropriate location on site.


We like to develop contacts with people who we can assist in delivering wood and mulch (woodchips) to locations near where we are working.

An area of ground over the root system of a tree or group of trees may be mulched in order to provide the following benefits, which would occur under natural conditions where organic matter (e.g. dead leaves) accumulates on the ground under trees:

  • Moisture Retention
  • Weed Suppression
  • Encouragement of Beneficial Soil Flora and Fauna
  • Relief From or Prevention of Compaction (Especially by Encouraging Earthworm Activity
  • Mitigation of Extremes of Soil Temperature
  • Absorption of Toxic Materials
  • Release of Nutrients Into the Soil
