Over 30 years of great products

Nature’s Choice was founded in 1978 by Glennville native, Julian Thomas.

Mr. Thomas began processing unretained raw pine bark from local area sawmills into pine bark nuggets and mulch for utilization by nearby landscapers and nurseries. Through his hard work, discipline and attention to detail, Nature’s Choice has since doubled in size, providing bagged and bulk pine bark products to customers throughout the southeastern United States, including Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee and Florida.


In January 2004, leadership of Nature’s Choice was passed on to Julian’s grandson, Drew Thomas.  Under Drew’s supervision, Nature’s Choice continues to expand and thrive, including the expansion into kiln-dried firewood and firestarter.  Drew is committed to providing the same exceptional level of customer service and product selection, maintaining the tradition of integrity established almost 30 years ago by his grandfather.

Our Pine Bark and Mulch Process

Nature’s Choice provides premium pine bark and mulch for every landscaping need.  We have been providing exceptional service and quality pine bark products to the southeastern United States for nearly 30 years.

The processing of Nature’s Choice pine bark begins in our own plant, where raw pine bark from area sawmills is screened into varying sizes and compositions.  We then offer our customers a variety of superior pine bark products, including pine bark nuggets and mini nuggets, as well as pine bark mulch, or fines.   Pine bark may be utilized as decorative ground cover, providing an aesthetic and long-lasting alternative to pine straw, on playgrounds to provide a safe cushion for children, and as a soil amendment resulting in richer, healthier soil.

Nature’s Choice supervises the pine bark production process from start to finish

Nature’s Choice supervises the pine bark production process from start to finish, ensuring that our customers receive only choice pine bark products, delivered door-to-door by our own trucks, featuring live bottom walking floor trailers, vans, and flatbeds for effortless unloading and distribution. Nature’s Choice offers unparalleled customer service and a commitment to providing quality products to every customer.  At Nature’s Choice, we take the time to listen to the prerequisites of each client, and to devote consideration and care to every operation.  Our attention to detail and extensive knowledge of our product gained through years of experience in the industry combine to ensure customer satisfaction in every project, regardless of size.

Our Firewood Process

Nature’s Choice is now proud to provide premium firewood and firestarter products.  The processing of Nature’s Choice firewood and firestarter begins at our own plant, where hardwood from surrounding areas is brought in and then screened for quality assurance. Once split, the wood is kiln-dried in one of our three onsite kilns to ensure optimum burning efficiency and to eliminate all pests. Our firewood and firestarter products are then bagged or bundled and palletized. Finished palletized product is then stored in one of our two warehouse facilities either in Glennville, GA or Tucker, GA it is protected for all weather elements.   Both warehouses are equipped with multiple loading docks, making shipping convenient, timely and easy.






Nature’s Choice Firewood is proud to be certified by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) as well as the Georgia Department of Agriculture. This certification is testament to our commitment of providing superior products and excellent service to all of our customers.
