When tree trunks are debarked, the bark is created as a secondary product before the cutting process begins in the sawmill.
Bark is used as a biomass for heating purposes or in many cases chipped and processed into bark-chip mulch without any further additives.
Popular bark-chip mulch customers include bark-processing operations such as gardeners and landscapers. The layer of bark-chip mulch protects the ground from weeds and keeps it from drying out; it also helps fertilize the soil and can be used in landscape design. In addition, it provides a home to many different micro-organisms that permanently increase the soil’s fertility.
Moreover, bark-chip mulch is ideal for designing outdoor areas such as parks or commercial centres, gardens or playgrounds.
