Ecomulch Celebrates its 10th Year

Ecomulch, a family owned business in Martinez, was founded to re-purpose the woody materials that our parent company, Hamilton Tree Service Inc., was generating and sending to the landfill. We have designed a product that is free from contaminates making it environmentally preferable and ecologically friendly.

Since 2006, Ecomulch has diverted approximately 18,000 tons of wood material with the help of local cities and landscapers in the Contra Costa County. We take what would otherwise be a waste product from Hamilton Tree Services and other local professional tree companies and process it to create a usable, high quality product that is valuable to our local communities.

The product we create is absolutely the best mulch available due to the high organic content created by using the entire tree and not just the bark. We also pride ourselves on our zero contamination feedstock, unlike mass produced mulch found from most refuse companies. We do not use pallets, construction debris, or green waste that may have contaminates such as herbicide, petroleum or metal products. In addition, we produce a small carbon footprint due to our location.

Ecomulch has turned local urban tree trimmings -- an otherwise typical landfill waste product -- into a sustainable business of recycling and reusing some of nature’s most nutrient-dense material. From mulch, wood chips and bark, to topsoil, compost, and even recycled, urban, log planter beds, Ecomulch has laid the groundwork and ground cover for landscaping that is as sustainable as it is beautiful.

Shop Ecomulch for all your landscape needs, including a large variety of organic mulch, compost and soil.
