Anyone having trouble finding mulch?

I was talking to my main mulch supplier today
He was telling me mulch has been hard to come by with the lumber mills shut down(around here anyway)

I heard that this might be a problem in the future. It hasn't hit my area, yet.

I've been hearing that rumor too, but I've yet to see it happen.

Mulch in good supply

I dont anticipate any problems. We may see an increase in supply if Emerald Ash Borer gets further into our state and kills all the trees in the forests.

Na, we got a boat load, we are still good to go. We actually have 2 areas, they are about 20 miles of each other and they get trucks in all the time.
