    I can not find the Dallas Tree Service Company(Leslie?) that it was mentioned as a free mulch provider.

    Here is information about getting mulch delivered to your house for free. I also included information about three places where you can pick up free mulch yourself.

    Davey Tree Experts in Richardson dumps mulch to people for free. The manager's name is Brian Cox and he can be reached at 972 669 8980. Ask what he can do for you for a load of mulch. You might want anywhere from a whole load down to 1/4 of a typical load of mulch. Specify that you do NOT want any logs in the mulch. You might get mulch right away, or you might have to wait a while. It depends on when they have a load near you. After you request mulch, if you haven't received any after a month, call and remind them.

    Lindsey's Tree Service also will deliver mulch to your yard; you just have to ask. Contact Lindsey's Tree Service at 214 553 0707. They are in Dallas on Northwest Highway, and you can get free mulch at their store 24/7. See below.

    Here are three places where you can pick up free mulch yourself.

    Free Mulch - White Rock Stables, 214 348 3110, 8949 Lanshire Drive, Dallas, Texas 75238

    Free Mulch - Garland Recycling Center, 1426 Commerce St., Garland, TX 75040, telephone 972 205 3500
    The quality of the mulch varies. Sometimes it is ground up pretty well, similar to mulch that is bought in a plastic bag at Home Depot. Sometimes there are some larger chunks of tree limbs mixed in. Go in the entrance, turn right, heading for the exit. The mulch bin is near the exit.
    Monday - Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., Saturday 8:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m., closed Sunday
    Call first to make sure that the bin has mulch.
