Lancaster Mulching and Wood Chipping

For every tree removal or stump removal done, there are leftover debris that needs to be taken care of. But rather than getting rid of it, you can instead turn it into mulch to improve your garden or yard. It’s one of our services that will turn your branches, trunks, stumps, or any wood into wood chips


Through the process of mulching, these chips can significantly improve a soil’s moisture and maintain a cool temperature. It can also improve aesthetics when done neatly and strategically. It’s one of the most common used tree care services in urban areas, due to the soil’s poor condition. If your trees or plants are having soil problems, and you happen to have wood debris lying around somewhere, contact us and we’ll turn it into mulch for your vegetation.

What is Wood Chipping?

Wood chipping is a service where we shred and chop wood using a machine to create wood chips. They can be used as a biomass solid fuel, raw material for creating wood pulp, or mulch. They don’t cost much and they help reduce waste materials. Some could say it’s a recycling process for your unused pile of wood.

What is Mulching and What are the Benefits?

Mulching is a method in tree care maintenance that helps cultivate the soil by applying wood chips on the soil’s surface. It offers many benefits for your vegetation, and that is why it has been used often ever since. Here are some benefits you can expect from the service.


  • It can be Cost-Effective: It can replace some positive effects gained from using fertilizers, herbicides, and other solutions. This reduces your expenditures on these treatments that you won’t be needing.
  • It Reduces Weed Growth: It takes up space and leaves no room for weeds to grow. There can be a few that can wiggle their way out into the surface, but their numbers certainly have been reduced.
  • It provides Insulation: Trees and plants are affected by climate, and mulching is a good way to help them survive extreme weather. It helps them overcome heat waves during the summer and the cold winter.
  • It improves the quality of the soil: It can provide nutrients over time. This improves the overall quality of soil, which will ultimately provide your trees with stronger resistance against diseases and illnesses.
  • It can boost Aesthetics: Some cities use mulch as a decorative practice, rather than a care maintenance one. It’s because it increases their property’s appeal and helps increase its market value.
  • It can prevent Erosion: Rain falls and wind surges have a lessened impact, thanks to the mulch covering the soil.
