Where Does Your Mulch Come From?

Today, Mulch can come from anywhere. Are you taking the appropriate precautions to protect yourself and those around you? Forestry Resources, Inc. has been supplying the trade with safe, clean mulches for 20 years. We wrote the book on alternative mulches in 1983 with the introduction of FloriMulch®. Since then we've been at the forefront of new product development. Our products are manufactured with only the highest in production standards. Let us give you peace of mind on your next job or project.

Take Steps Today To Ensure Safe-Reliable Products!

Recent studies and reports are highlighting a problem with the mulch used in children's playgrounds and landscaping projects. Mulches made from recycled pressure treated wood can contain high levels of arsenic, a known cancer-causing agent. This arsenic may seep into surrounding soil, groundwater or through human skin if it is handled and touched. Those concerned about using these types of mulch products can find an alternative from Forestry Resources. The company features a product line derived from melaleuca. The end result is arsenic free* mulch.

FloriMulch, a melaleuca mulch product, provides an environmentally friendly solution offering a number of advantages over other types of mulches. Forestry Resources offers three different FloriMulch products. Each one is derived from 100 percent melaleuca, is not treated with CCA or any other non-organic chemical, and is completely non-toxic.

The Original Environmentally Sensible Mulch!

FloriMulch, the leader in the up-and-coming melaleuca mulch market, provides a number of features based on its core component...melaleuca. It serves a practical use of controlling weeds, reducing watering, and protecting roots. In addition, recent studies suggest it is termite resistant. Preliminary research conducted at the University of Florida suggests termites survived better and consumed more mulch made up of pine and cypress sapwoods. However, they did not survive with a strict melaleuca diet. In addition, Forestry Resources has developed a curing process that raises the temperature of the mulch to 140 degrees, which eliminates burrowing nematodes and weed seed germination. In fact, FloriMulch is the only melaleuca mulch product earning a state certification as nematode free

Melaleuca mulch provides further benefits as an environmentally friendly product. Melaleuca is a non-native tree that was introduced to in the 1920?s as a way to dry up the Everglades. Because of its quick proliferation, it destroys native vegetation. Today, it is illegal to plant new melaleuca trees, but it still grows. Forestry Resources created the FloriMulch product as a method of eliminating this evasive tree and finding a practical use for it. Melaleuca mulch is an environmentally friendly alternative to cypress mulch. The enormous amounts of cypress mulch produced each year threaten the survival of this native Florida tree important for flood control, wildlife habitat and water purity. All FloriMulch products feature an endorsement from The Friends of the Florida Everglades, leaders in the crusade to save the National Park's native environment.

FloriMulch is already the mulch of choice for many counties and cities throughout Florida when it comes to providing surface cover in parks and playgrounds. The melaleuca mulch product provides an important buffer between children and possibly contaminated soil and is fully certified for shock absorbing qualities in accordance with the American Society for Testing and Materials safety standards. In addition, FloriMulch PlaySafe is ADA compliant and allows wheelchair accessibility where other playground material separate and become unstable. It is also a clean alternative to sand.

Forestry Resources also carries a line of non-melaleuca premium shredded colored (red, gold, eucalyptus blend) mulch. These products do not contain any pressure treated lumber or reconstituted woods. Furthermore, all coloring agents are environmentally safe pigments and are Material Safety Data Sheet approved. 

Let us provide you PEACE OF MIND! 

* According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency,  Arsenic occurs naturally in harmless trace quantities in all living things, including plants and soil. Thus all mulch and soil products will contain some traces of this natural element.  EPA information and  independent laboratory testing on our products are available upon request.
