R. C. W. (Ramial Chipped Wood)

R.C.W. (Ramial Chipped Wood) is a mixture of small limbs, twigs and branches of hardwoods. It is used for mulching, fertilizing, and soil enrichment. It is processed into small pieces; the resulting product has a high ratio of cambium to cellulose and is higher in nutrients. Researches into forest soils and ecosystems led to recognition of value of this material.
