How to Properly Mulch Around a Tree

Mulch is one of the best finishing touches you can add to any tree or landscape bed, but mulch does much more than provide a clean look and suppress weeds. In this video, you will learn the important benefits that mulch can provide with a step-by-step guide on how to properly mulch around a tree.

Mulch can help:

  • Minimize competition between turf and trees for nutrients in the soil
  • Regulate soil temperature
  • Retain soil moisture
  • Protect trees from equipment damage
  • Reduce soil compaction over time

Too much of a good thing can be bad, so it’s important to know the correct amount of mulch to put down and how to correctly do it.

Contact your local Davey arborist if you need mulch advice or any type of tree care guidance.
