Here is my best explanation:

'reduce to pulp' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'there's many a tree' is the subsidiary indication.
'there's' says to put letters next to each other.
'many' becomes 'm'.
'a tree' becomes 'ash' (ash is a kind of tree).
'm' put next to 'ash' is 'mash'.

'to' is the link.
