Bark and Compost Blowing
With our large-capacity bark blower vehicle, we can support erosion control projects with a cost-efficient application of bark and shredded wood mulch, topsoil, compost, sawdust, and wood shavings delivered directly from the truck or through hand-held hoses. Distribution requires a crew of only two to four people and eliminates hauling and spreading the material. We can reach sites up to 1000 feet away using coupled lengths of 4- to 5-inch-diameter hose.The blown-on bark or compost produces a smooth, even layer of wood mulch that greatly increases nutrient levels and the water-holding capacity of soils. The mulch provides insulation and protection for seeded areas. It further aids erosion control by reducing rain-drop impact on exposed soils. In recent projects, we used our Bark Blower to apply 2,000 yards of decorative bark mulch for landscaping of a retail business center and to apply pneumatically-installed compost over two acres of roadside disturbance for a highway restoration project.
