If you want your trees to live a long and healthy life, the best thing you can do is start mulching them properly. It is probably the single most significant step you can take to keep your trees strong and beautiful throughout the years. With the right type of mulch and the correct mulching technique, your trees will benefit and thrive now and far into the future.

Numerous Benefits of Mulch

Spreading a generous layer of mulch in a ring around a tree will provide these benefits:

  • Controls temperature. Mulching can help your trees avoid dramatic temperature swings, which can be harmful. Adding or replenishing one or two inches of mulch will insulate tree roots, keeping them warmer in winter and cooler in summer.
  • Conserves water. Creating a mulch ring at least five inches away from the trunk will increase water retention and decrease surface evaporation. Since mulching reduces water consumption, it is beneficial during droughts and dry seasons.
  • Reduces weeds. Weeds can rob water and nutrients from trees. Placing a layer of mulch at least three feet in diameter will keep weed seeds from germinating by blocking the light they need to grow.
  • Adds soil nutrients. When mulch breaks down over time, it adds nutrient-laden organic matter to the soil. This significanly improves soil health and promotes healthy tree root growth.
