Whole Tree Mulch Compared To Other Types

Whole Tree Mulch

  • Locally sourced, healthy tree material
  • No dyes, processing, or waste material
  • Replenishes nutrient rich matter back into the soil
  • Improves soil biology, aeration, structure & drainage
  • Absorbs, stores and releases moisture into the soil

Bark Mulch

  • Typically shipped in from other regions
  • Often contains filler wood such as pallets and treated lumber
  • Contains too much of an impermeable waxy substance called Suberin, which causes water runoff

Dyed Mulch

  • Contains dye that can damage plants and be harmful to the environment
  • Excessive water is used to distribute dye, requiring anti-fungal chemicals
  • Anti-fungals are used which kill beneficial fungi

Locally Sourced

We take mulch near me seriously, utilizing only local tree materials from Bluestone Tree operations. This gives us complete control of which trees are processed into mulch in our closed facility.

Tree Quality

We ensure our product only contains whole tree organic mulch material (no plants, grasses, wood pallets, treated lumber, chemicals, trash etc.), often found in other types of mulch.

Arborist Reviewed

We work closely with two consulting arborists in the community and have seven ISA Certified Arborists on staff, ensuring proper identity of trees best for mulching.


Our mulch and wood chips keep useful products in Bloomington, and out of the landfill – a good practice both economically and environmentally. Mulch is one way we repurpose all tree material.

Whole Tree Mulch

Our organic whole tree mulch is locally sourced, and contains only clipped healthy tree parts with no added fillers.

Tree mulch decomposes over time and slowly builds organic matter back into the soil, improving soil biology, aeration, structure and drainage. Unlike bark mulch, whole tree mulch will not clump and repel water from getting to the roots, nor will it allow potentially harmful dyes to reach the soil.

Bluestone Tree and Bluestone Organic logos side-by-side

Together, Bluestone Tree & Bluestone Organic form a complete recycling tree operation. We remove, prune and process the whole tree. The logs are used for lumber, wood slabs, or organic mulch. The tops or canopies of trees are used for organic mulch and compost.
