Pine bark is made from pine tree’s shredded barks. Some of the mulching material is obtained from the pine tree logs, and rest is the small pieces collected by the screening of pine nuggets. These pine nuggets take a long time to break down, to prevent soil erosion.
Pine bark stays for a long time in the garden, unlike the other organic mulches. The natural bark of pine stays longer than any other wood in the yard. Other mulches tend to fade to gray after a period, but pine bark remains in the garden for a longer time. Compare to other mulches, pine bark is lightweight, and it can be spread quickly in the garden. Organic mulch prepared from pine bark helps in retaining moisture of plants and prevents soil-borne diseases from spreading.
