A by-product of local Missoula tree work, Arborist Chips include all parts of freshly-serviced trees that have made their way through the chipper (branches, leaves, bark, etc). These “Grade A” chips will vary in their composition but can provide great benefits to your landscape.
Acting as a natural mulch, applying a thick layer (3”-4”) to an area will help to suppress weeds. By using all parts of the tree, these chips help to retain and slowly release moisture into soil. They’ll help to protect the ground from a hot sun, keeping soil cool and plants happy.
As a soil amendment, Arborist Chips decompose slowly, gradually supplying a diverse environment of beneficial nutrients and thus contributing to long-term soil health, feeding nearby plants and trees.
This material can also be used to create garden pathways, cultivate mushrooms, nourish your orchard, or simply as an aromatic top dressing for your landscape!
Take care not to apply natural mulch directly around the stems of trees and shrubs, which can cause rot and suffocate plant roots. You also do not want to incorporate this green carbon source into garden soil, as they’ll inhibit plants’ uptake of available nitrogen.
