    I have wondered about this too, I guess you would have to go to where ever they grind up the bark, and they would sell it for MUCH cheaper, but the trick is finding the mill that does this. And you may be required to buy alot at one time, like enough to fill a tri-axle dump truck?! But if you slip an employee some money, Im sure they will take care of you. It is likely they dont consider a bobcat scoop amount of mulch to be that important? I have no idea where there is one around here? I may try to contact a lumber mill, they would surely know where this is done.
