Bark Varieties

The following photos are intended to give you a general idea

of bark size, color and quality. 

Bark appears darker when wet and lighter when dry. 

Today's timber operations produce varying qualities of bark mulch.

Mulches vary from load to load. 

We encourage our customers to visit our sales office

and view the material prior to purchase. 

Hemlock Bark

This is our most popular mulch.  Gardeners especially love hemlock bark because it is relatively "sliver-free", which means there is less likelihood for you to get stuck with a sliver.  These varieties are useful in gardens where color is an important design factor.

 
Red Hemlock
Coastal Hemlock

Another popular bark product, Douglas Fir comes in a variety of textures and it has a pleasant smell.  Be aware, it is fairly itchy and will give you a few slivers!
