Why you should mulch your trees every spring and winter

Let’s talk about the importance of tree mulching. Continue below to learn why tree mulching is so important not only for the survival of your trees, but also for curbing the curb appeal of your property!

Mulching is an important part of tree care

Mulch is a man-made product that typically consists of organic materials such as wood chips, pine needles, manure, and other compost. However, they can also be made from non-organic materials such as rocks, stones, geotextile fabrics, and crushed rubber. Properly applied mulch helps the soil maintain sufficient levels of moisture. This not only improves the condition of the soil, it does much more!

Practical benefits of tree mulching

✓ Promotes overall tree health.
✓ Inhibits weed growth.
✓ Insulates the soil.
✓ Protects tree roots from extreme temperatures.
✓ Prevents certain plant diseases.
✓ Improved soil aeration and drainage.
✓ Gives a neat look to the landscaping.
✓ Decomposing mulch improves soil fertility.

Best time to mulch trees

Trees should be mulched at the beginning of spring, after the ground thaws from a frozen state. You should also mulch your trees at the beginning of winter, before the ground freezes. Mulching is an important part of the tree care process, so keep your program up to date. There are a variety of mulches to choose from, including colors, textures, and shapes. Don’t forget to mulch your shrubs, too!

Winter tree protection

In addition to pruning and mulching, there are several other plans you can take to ensure winter survival and optimal spring growth. These tasks include cabling and strengthening, tree bark repairs, integrated pest management, routine inspections, and removal of dead or hazardous trees.
