Two for one hauling
Speaking of amendments, instead of spreading or burning the chips from the old trees and vines, (which is expensive, difficult, creates pathogens and hot spots in your soil, and is bad for air quality) we bring our trucks in loaded with amendments to give you new orchard or vineyard the best start. These trucks are then unloaded and the amendments spread on your soil. The empty trucks pick up the wood chips and haul them away to Holloway Environmental’s waste facility in Lost Hills.
Create energy and amendments from the waste
We have partnered with Aries to build technology at our waste facility that recycles old orchard trees and vine chips into synthetic gas to create electricity to be put back onto the grid. The remains of the process creates a biochar that is heavy in carbon and can be put back into the soil as an amendment. And because the biochar has a honeycomb-like molecular structure it helps retain water in the soil.
