What is forest floor mulch?

Mulch is the magic that slowly turns our clay soils into a deep bed of rich soil. Mulch prevents sunlight from reaching the soil and reduces weed growth around plants. Mulch helps absorb the beneficial summer rains and then prevents the water from evaporating. Mulch prevents plants from overheating in summer and from getting too cold in winter.

Mulch prevents soil from being blown away by the wind during dry periods. A dark brown mulch made from fir bark that ranges in size from about 2 inches to dust. The dark brown color and wide range of particle sizes create a natural appearance on a forest floor. Forest mulch converts leftover vegetation from an area such as scrubland, trees, short herbaceous foliage and heavy branches into a natural, environmentally friendly top layer of ground cover.

Commonly known as mulching, the process eliminates the need for several machines, such as excavators, tree shears, wood shredders, shredders and transportation equipment. On the other hand, with forest mulching, a single machine is used to cut, grind and clean vegetative growth and young trees, leaving a layer of shredded mulch. This protective layer of organic matter is allowed to decompose and is reintroduced into the soil, making it richer and more fertile. The biodegradable top layer (mulch) becomes a natural protective barrier on the soil that stabilizes the soil, prevents erosion and encourages the growth of native plants.

While mulching is a great way to replenish soil and eliminate that unwanted vegetative growth, forest mulching has some limitations and disadvantages. The padding also helps to control the growth of vegetation in forests in accordance with the needs of the animal species that inhabit the area. With the right type of mulching machinery, forest mulching can be done even in the most challenging terrain. All of these interactions, and many more that I simply don't have time to explain, between trees and the land that surrounds them are ultimately what make a forest a forest.
