How to Mulch Around Trees

When mulching around trees there are a few tips to keep in mind. Always leave a gap between the tree trunk and the mulch. Basically, think "doughnut." That circular gap of mulch is better for the tree's health and aids in watering. Avoid piling mulch against the trunk as well. Piling mulch against the tree trunk can cause problems with rot and insects and have a long-term negative effect on the tree. Plus it directs water away from the root zone.
