Forestry Resources, Inc. was a pioneer in the Florida exotic pest plant removal and ecological restoration industry.  As an innovative part of the exotic pest plant removal process, FRI was able to create a valuable and usable landscape mulch product.  Today, The Mulch & Soil Company continues this exceptionally green and environmentally prudent practice by recycling trees that are typically piled and burned on project sites. Their signature melaleuca tree based Mulch product, FloriMulch, has won multiple environmental awards and is endorsed by the Friends of Everglades.

Melaleuca Story

the melaleuca tree & foresty resources.

circle everglades.png

The invasive species was introduced in the 1920's by federal foresters looking for a way to dry up the Everglades. The melaleuca experiment backfired as the Australian import adapted to its new environment, and with no natural pests or enemies, quickly invaded and literally destroyed hundreds of thousands of acres of once pristine native plant communities.  The local, state and federal government began to recognize the negative economic impact of the tree in the early eighties.  By that time, the destruction of wetlands, clogging of drainage ways, and invasion of grazing lands were among the many unanticipated consequences of the tree's importation.

In 1983, Forestry Resources, Inc. was able to develop a solution to help slow the spread of the melaleuca tree; landscape mulch. We are still proudly manufacturing melaleuca landscape mulch under the FloriMulch Brand.
