Why Compost?

Updated: Sep 19, 2023

OnSite tree is engaged in an eco-friendly practice that involves repurposing tree waste into nutrient-rich compost.

This sets us apart from most tree companies, and allows us to offer a superior and more sustainable service! Here are a few reasons we choose to recycle as much material as possible:

  1. Long Term Vision: Compost is essential for growing an abundance of natural food, and supports our goal to build 100 Sarasota Food Forests by 2030.

  2. Environmental Responsibility: Instead of disposing of tree trimmings and removal debris in landfills, we're actively contributing to environmental sustainability. Landfills emit harmful gases during decomposition, and composting minimizes this negative impact.

  3. Cost Efficiency: Traditional waste disposal can be costly. By composting, we reduce our disposal expenses and allocate resources more efficiently.

  4. Enhanced Soil Health: Compost serves as a powerhouse of nutrients for the soil. It enriches the earth with organic matter and essential elements, fostering robust plant growth and healthier ecosystems.

  5. Positive Image: Our commitment to composting showcases our dedication to responsible business practices and environmental stewardship. It resonates with clients and communities that value companies with a strong environmental ethic.

  6. Carbon Footprint Reduction: Composting mitigates greenhouse gas emissions associated with traditional waste disposal methods. This aligns with our commitment to reducing our carbon footprint.

  7. Educational Opportunities: Our composting initiative offers opportunities to educate our clients and the community about the benefits of sustainable practices and the importance of environmental conservation.

Our adoption of composting not only demonstrates our commitment to growing local food food, but also aligns with our dedication to environmental preservation and responsible business operations. Honestly, to us it's a no-brainer. Our hope is to popularize the method and encourage more tree services to recycle by producing valuable compost. Want to learn more?
