Bark

Our Bark

 

We process bark sourced from sawmills
throughout South Island.

Our product is stockpiled and left to age for a precise period before being processed through a series of trommell screens, ranging from 3mm to 60mm in size. It is again stockpiled and aged further, before being delivered in bulk truck and trailer units, which can hold up to 100 cubic metres. 

We generally sell TNZ bark in bulk loads, though we will put you in touch with our numerous resellers and landscapers throughout the South Island for smaller amounts.

We produce seven grades of bark, which are used for:

  • landscaping
  • dairy wintering pads
  • horticultural growing media
  • orchid growing
  • bio filters.

Bark Grades

 

Our bark is a natural and environmentally friendly product
taken almost exclusively from Pinus Radiata trees
milled for timber.

B4 (L Nuggets)

 

B4 (4060mm) is a clean, tidy bark nugget used predominantly for the purposes of decorative landscaping.
Nuggets and bark coverage slow moisture loss in your garden, suppress weed growth and compliment with a distinctive rich, ‘red brown’ colour finish.

B3 (M Nuggets)

 

B3 (2040mm) is used for decorative landscaping and also makes an excellent playground cushion.

B2 (S Nuggets)

 

B2 (1220mm) is predominantly used for decorative landscaping and makes an excellent playground cushion.

25mm Décor Bark

 

Decorative Bark can be used in a multitude of planted areas to best show-off both shrubs and delicate plantings.

Bark Dust

 

Dust is a grade of fine bark used for mulch, composting, potting mix, as well as a weed suppressant and growing media.

Bark Flake

 

Flake is the size of a small pea. It is used for potting mix, as a weed suppressant, as decorative bark and a growing media in sheltered areas.

13mm Black Bark

 

Screened bark fines, are purely that but provide a great base of organic matter for all soil types. Guaranteed to fit between 013mm in size, bark fines are the natural choice to help condition heavy soil. Their small size means a quick breakdown without compromising nitrogen and other nutrients, that can reduce using heavier graded mulches.

25mm Black Bark

 

Similar to the above but due to a larger size range it will last longer on your garden. It’s the perfect product for conditioning the soil with added benefits of holding moisture and suppressing weeds at the same time. The dark appearance also creates a nice color contrast around your plants and shrubs.

Fresh Fine

 

Fresh fine is a 113mm bark ideal for mulch and weed suppression. You get great coverage due to its smaller size and it's the perfect product for smaller delicate plantings

We process bark sourced from sawmills
throughout Otago, Southland and Nelson

Bark Processing

 

We leave the bark, after we recieve it, to age for a period then process it through a series of trommelling screens, which range in size from 3mm to 60mm.

Each grade falls through the screen and then certain grades move over a carpet belt to remove impurities, resulting in a superior end-product nugget.



It is then stockpiled to age further before being delivered in bulk by our own truck and trailer units, which hold up to 100 cubic metres.

We only sell in bulk loads but if you require smaller quantities we can put you in touch with our numerous resellers and landscapers located throughout the South Island.
