Boise Community Forestry has mulch and wood available for sale in varying quantities throughout the year. These products are one of our efforts to recycle wood from the pruning and removal of trees in Boise's city forest.
Mulch and firewood is available at the Community Forestry office, located at 4969 Dorman St Boise, ID 83705. The office is on the corner of S. Orchard St. and W. Dorman St., about one mile south of the intersection of interstate 84 and Orchard St. Turn east off Orchard onto Dorman St. and then take an immediate right into the Community Forestry parking lot.
For mulch: Our mulch is considered a medium grade mulch. Most trees or limbs that we remove from our parks or along the public right-of-way are run through a chipper. Once a year, we process a big mountain of collected chips in a tub grinder. At that point, the mulch is ready for sale.
We sell mulch for $16.00 a cubic yard. Our staff can load the mulch for you into an open bed pick up or trailer. You can also buy the mulch for $3.00 a bag (lawn size bags). If buying by the bag, you will need to bring your own bags and shovel and load the mulch yourself. We are currently loading on Wednesdays between the hours of 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. and on Friday between the hours of 12 p.m. and 3 p.m. Whether loading the mulch yourself or whether our staff loads the mulch for you, call (208) 608-7700 in advance. In some instances, we are not able to load during these times due to staff and equipment availability. Calling in advance is highly recommended.
For firewood: We do not offer delivery, bring your own truck or trailer. All wood must be taken as is, we do not allow cutting on the premises. Firewood can be purchased for $80.00 per cord or $0.63 per cubic foot. We are only available to load firewood on Friday mornings, and you must call in advance to schedule a time.
Bring a tarp to cover your load as required by Ada County Highway District.
Wood working: Don’t forget to check with us for wood that might be suitable for your furniture making, wood turning and craft projects. Prices are the same as for the firewood. Please check in with the front office before going into the yard.
