The Great Mulch Wall in Long Beach

LONG BEACH — This week in Long Beach, noise pollution might be down thanks to the Great Wall of Mulch that has been built along the heavily traveled Terminal Island Freeway.

The wall extends the length of Hudson Park on the westside and is serving as an environmentally friendly buffer zone. It is said to reduce noise and eliminate the eyesore of the busy freeway.  The Great Wall of Mulch is 12 feet high and 3 feet wide. It’s made completely out of mulch which is all composed of tree trimmings from Long Beach’s urban forest.

The total project cost is $150,000. The funding also includes further exploration on effectiveness of the mulch wall, including whether it can absorb air pollution such as diesel particulates.
