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. Please be aware we are currently loading only on Wednesday mornings, between 7am and 9am, and Friday afternoons between 12pm and 3pm. Call (208) 608-7700 in advance to be absolutely sure someone is in the office. Our office is not always open due to staff working off site.
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. See the above paragraph for contact information and available loading times.
Please bring a tarp to cover your load as required by Ada County Highway District.
