Is forest mulch organic?

It consists of decaying plant matter. Mulch is found naturally within any forest, as leaves, twigs, fruits and bark fall to the forest floor and serve as mulch. In today's gardening industry, companies are trying to replicate the natural mulch found in forests and mulch products can be found in organic and inorganic forms. Organic mulch includes wood chips, straw, bark chips and grass clippings.

Inorganic mulch includes rocks, stones, plastic, and pieces of brick. He points out that there are many types of mulch and that live mulch may be appropriate in some situations. Natural forest mulch (also known as humus or tuff) is harvested responsibly in an area free of pesticides and fertilizers. Forestry grinders can also operate in adverse weather conditions and on softer and more vulnerable surfaces, allowing forests to be covered all year round.

In addition, bark mulch is produced and shipped far away from the place of purchase, leaving the demanding land manager or homeowner without the much less carbon-intensive option of covering their landscapes with much lower carbon emissions. Perhaps most importantly, forest mulch is environmentally friendly and less harmful than other logging methods; soil is not healed or burned, “caring” trees suffer less damage, and “feeding” roots are protected. The resulting forest mulch also provides superior protection against erosion and reintroduces nutrients directly into the soil.
