Conservation and Environmental Efforts

Moorhead Brothers Inc. is conscious of the impact our business has on the environment and we take strides to lessen the impact of our work on the planet. We work very closely with our sister company, Mulch Services, Inc. to ensure that the trees we remove are recycled in ways that benefit others. In addition to using the trees as a source of mulch for plants, flower beds and landscaping, the mulch is also used for silt sock production. Silt socks are an environmentally friendly option for erosion and sediment control measures as well as waterway protection.

In addition to our recycling efforts we are also mindful of the impact on endangered species. MBI works in coordination with the forestry service on the conservation of the Indiana brown bat. We ensure that our cutting practices are in compliance with the forestry service guidelines to not disturb the bat’s roost trees during the summer months.
