BENEFITS OF TREE MULCHING
Californians have been dealing with drought for years and are familiar with strategies to manage it. Mulch when properly placed is an effective way Californians have found to maximize moisture during the dry season, which these days last year-round. This requires placing a layer of mulch around the base of a tree but not touching the tree trunk. In addition, the mulch is also effective at protecting tree roots from lawnmowers, animals, and other damage from the environment.
Our tree care specialists have been working have more than 25 years working in the high desert and can help explain water saving techniques available and help you implement them.
Mulch allows nutrients, important to a tree’s health, such as nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorus to accumulate in the soil around the tree. A thick layer of mulch, around the base of the tree, provides the tree access to more nutrients in the soil which the roots can absorb. We give recommend no more than 2-3 inches of mulch around the base of the tree and not touching the trunk of the tree.
Mulch can decrease soil compression and reduce soil erosion. It can reduce the dehydration of a tree and its roots which reduces the amount of water needed for irrigation. In addition, mulch supports local ecosystems, and prevents weed growth while producing an attractive manicured landscape. Not only do trees become vulnerable to issues without mulch, but trees also get many benefits when mulch is layered over tree roots.
ALL ABOUT MULCHING
Additional Benefits of Mulching Trees
There are many additional benefits to tree mulching which provides an important layer of protection for the roots of the tree.
Mulch acts as insulation and keeps the soil around the tree’s roots cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. We recommend using coarser organic mulch over processed plastic or fabric mulch, as it is better able to protect your trees year-round.
Trees encircled with a layer of mulch have a more manicured look and which makes them more aesthetically pleasing.
Mulch reduces the area of grass to mow and prevents weed growth around the tree, while also protecting the roots and trunk of the tree from damage by the mower blades.
Drawbacks of Not Mulching Trees
There are some easily avoidable issues to which a tree becomes vulnerable in the absence of a protective layer of mulch at the base of the tree.
Tree roots become dehydrated more easily without a mulch layer and this can lead to the tree also becoming dehydrated. Dehydrated trees are far more vulnerable to both pest infestations and diseases.
Slow Root Growth
Tree roots compete for nutrients with grass and when a tree’s roots are dehydrated, they are less efficient at absorbing nutrients. This results in their slower rate of growth.
Weed growth is suppressed around the base of the tree which has a layer of mulch covering its roots and they also compete with the tree roots for nutrients.
