Did you know that the best thing to feed a tree is a tree? Tree mulching in Brisbane (a form of organic mulching), is the ideal way to enrich your soil and ensure your garden or landscape thrives.
Arbor Operations deliver environmentally-sustainable, organic mulches direct to your door, to help keep your trees and garden healthy and attractive.
Mulching is essential for your garden’s health. In fact, the simple act of mulching your garden with tree mulch can bring a lot of benefits:
Mulching keeps your trees and shrubs healthy
Mulch acts as a protective blanket to keep essential nutrients in your soil.
Mulching helps your roots maintain an even temperature
Mulch regulates soil temperature by shading in the summer and insulating against cold winter frosts and winds, so your shrub and tree roots can grow healthy and strong.
Mulching keeps your soil moist
Mulch helps retain moisture within your soil and reduces water evaporation, giving your shrubs and trees the moisture they need to thrive.
Mulching prevents weed competition
A top layer of mulch will limit the growth of weeds in your garden and ensure your trees and shrubs are not competing for valuable water and nutrients.
Tree mulch is eco-friendly
Since tree mulch is made with recycled organic matter, it is eco-friendly. It also reduces how often you need to water your garden and improves water percolation — saving you time and money and conserving water.
“At Arbor Operations, we are passionate about environmental sustainability and committed to providing experienced, reliable and professional tree services.”

Mulching is a widely-practised gardening technique that involves spreading mulch on top of and around the root systems of your trees and shrubs. This helps conserve moisture and improve the condition of the soil by increasing its organic carbon content.
Tree mulching your garden has many benefits. Mulch is spread on top of and around the root systems of your trees and shrubs.
Tree mulch is vegetative material, including tree bark, wood chips, and leaves from a tree. This type of organic mulch has the advantage of enriching your soil with nutrients as it breaks down, enhancing microorganism activity in the soil and contributing to the health of your plants. Regular Brisbane tree mulching can greatly improve the vitality of your garden.
A mulched garden is often more weed-free and drought-resistant than a non-mulched garden. Mulching can help save you time and energy by reducing your need to weed and water your garden. You’ll also spend less money on water bills.
Organic forest mulch is one of the best mulch choices for trees and shrubs in terms of water infiltration, moisture retention, temperature moderation, restricting weed growth and stimulating microbial activity.
In contrast, inorganic mulches typically consist of recycled glass, rubber or stone. In general, organic mulches are superior to inorganic mulches for long-term soil improvement because their organic matter adds helpful nutrients to the soil.
Mulch is best added before summer since it helps keep the soil cool and reduces water loss through evaporation. The best mulches are coarse, with larger particles to allow water percolation between them.
Spring or early summer is the best time to apply mulch to your commercial and residential garden beds, slopes, public gardens, playgrounds, amusement parks and shopping centre interiors. You want to apply mulch at this time because it will trap moisture from wet weather, and ensure your gardens won’t dry out quickly in the heat of summer.
