Hi, I’m Mitch Baker with American Plant Food. We have our tree properly planted now with our soil amendments. It’s at the proper depth. Now, it’s time to mulch this new tree.
And most people think of mulch as a decorative covering that goes around the base of the newly planted trees but mulches are so functional. It does three things for our plants. It helps conserve moisture. It helps moderate temperatures and it helps suppress weeds.
We don’t want to over-mulch. We’re going to apply the proper amount of mulch to get the benefits without causing any problems. There are lots of different mulches available today in garden centers and hardware stores and all of these bark or mulch products or by-products of the lumber and furniture industry.
We’re not cutting down trees just to get mulch to put around new plants. So, it could be pine bark chips or pine bark nuggets. It could be pine needles. It could be shredded hardwood. It could be cypress mulch. It could be cedar mulch. It could be coco shell mulch. All of these function and serve the purpose of mulching around our new trees.
Today, we’re going to use shredded hardwood mulch. We’re going to feather this out, dent it down to about one inch depth. We’re not placing it right up against the stem of the tree and we certainly don’t want to create that famous mulch volcano that you see. There is no benefit to that. In fact, it causes a lot of problems.
Too much mulch around trees causes barrier to moisture penetration, it’s an invitation for fungal diseases along the stem or crown of the tree. Suffocation can occur and that annual application of far too mulch causes way too many problems so we’ll keep to about an inch to get all the benefit without causing any problem.
