Wood Mulch Shortage?
« on: Thu July 01, 2021, 02:01:09 PM »
Folks, I'm in NC and have run into a scenario where Wood Mulch is back-ordered at least 12 weeks... are you seeing the same in your areas?  If not, could you please post your supplier info... I've got a 30 Acre project with wood mulch specified and would like to execute it with the mulch specified vs try to get the contract adjusted to go with an FGM (which is available).

Huge problem with Mulch this year.  Profile is 10 to 12 weeks out on production of standard mulches,   They are in the process of building a new plant.

There are a few other brands out there, Applegate (though I talked with a dealer and they are also 10 weeks out, MAT inc., not sure of their status and LCS
Buy early and stock up when you can.

Thanks Ed,
We typically keep around 3 acres of material on hand for immediate or small projects + an acre of Flexterra and have large projects delivered to the site.  This has thrown a wrench in our typicAL plan... how are you dealing with it?

I?ve been stepping back on selling mulch the last couple of years. More hassle than it?s worth sometimes   Just a sell to a few older customers who still call for trailer loads.  Busy with the Bowie sales anyway.

I think most all the mulch manufacturers are pretty backed up.   It seems about everything is in short supply this year.  We are having trouble getting engines, pumps and lots more.  About the only thing not in short supply is face masks.
