100% Recycled Cellulose w/ Tackifier

Product Overview

PREMIUM PAPER 200 is manufactured without adding water in the process.  In fact, our manufacturing process reduces moisture content to a staggering low 7% by weight!  That means that 200 lbs more fiber for every ton, or 10% more mulch for the money compared to most other national brands!  You avoid paying for 200 pounds of extra water!  Premium Paper 200 provides you the lowest cost!  No Water Added – 98.4% Active Ingredients

Tackifier is added to provide the additional holding power on job sites where the soil is loose and moderate erosion is a concern.

High moisture mulches are also a high risk for mold growth, which can dramatically lower germination rates and cause many other problems.   Premium Paper 200 has an  incredibly low moisture content that naturally inhibits mold growth, which can cause hard chunks that clog pumps, hoses and nozzles.  Plus our superb quality control process virtually eliminates debris clogging materials.


Our premium cellulose fibers increase your productivity and profits because our mulch mixes quickly reducing tank loading time.   On the ground Premium Mulch produces a true mulch blanket that helps to prevent soil erosion and provides an optimal environment for seed germination.


Premium Mulch 200 packaged in our exclusive 33 lb. bag can be used in any brand of hydroseeding equipment because the mulch breaks up easily and wets quickly, speeding up your loading time and increasing your productivity.  The full size hydromulch fibers provide better coverage and better results than any pourable or palletized mulch product.


Applegate’s convenient 33 lb “Easy Pour” bales are easier to handle, reducing the risk of injury and workman’s compensation claims. Less compression in the bales allow the fibers to fully expand in your slurry, providing better coverage.   There is a green dye pack included in every bale.
