How much mulch should do I use, and how do I apply it?

As a rule of thumb, a 2- to 4-inch layer of mulch that extends 4 to 6 feet from the base of the tree should be applied above the existing soil. Be sure to leave a one-inch gap between the base of the tree and the mulch so that the completed application resembles a doughnut.

KIND WORDS

“After Ben came out and diagnosed the problem, your technician did a root collar excavation and removed a girdling root that was strangling the trunk of our maple tree. That saved the tree! Thank you!”
