Our public mulch is offered free to the public when we generate more than what our parks use. The bin is first-come, first-served, and you will need to bring your own tools for loading. We cannot guarantee that mulch will be available, but our crews do try to keep it filled throughout the year. In order to help provide a consistent supply for our residents, use by commercial operations is prohibited.
Mulch pile is located across the street from the Forestry building on the west side of Recreation Way.
Forestry also sells hardwood through Colorado Springs Utilities public auctions online. Funds help purchase new street trees.
