What are Benefits of Wood Chipping and Mulching?
Chipping branches for mulch or wood chips for compost & soil regenerating is an excellent method of recycling tree waste. A professional grade chipping machine can handle foliage and branches up to 18 inches in diameter, and produce a fine-grained, forest mulch. A good company such as A-Local Tree Service will offer to remove the wood chips if you don't require them, we chip mulch directly into the back of one of our trucks & take it away to be recycled into wood chip mulch.
Mulch is used to aid in retaining moisture on garden beds as well as for helping to control weeds. A good layer of mulch can also benefit by keeping temperature moderated around plants, trees & garden beds; it prevents the topsoil from drying up & overheating, this can cause root damage to sensitive plant roots.
Mulch can also enrich the soil and assists in keeping good drainage structure as it decomposes. Mulched gardens are healthier overall, and can withstand drought conditions a lot better than un-mulched gardens. By using good quality mulch on your gardens can save you lots time on other tasks like weeding and watering. Another benefit of using good quality mulch is in reducing pest related problems.
Some types of mulch aren't any good for a garden, and a good arborist such as A-Local Tree Service will advise you about the suitability of a particular type mulch.
