The Importance of Mulching
Thursday, May 7, 2015

The Importance of Mulching Skillman, NJ - Our client has three maturing maples on their property. Two of them are thriving and one of the maples has a thinning canopy and many dead branches. After analyzing each of the trees, it was observed that the two thriving maples were along the edge of the property line well past where the grass ends and along the forest line. The thinning maple had a much different environment, with rocks surrounding the it's trunk.

The difference in these two scenarios is that the thriving trees along the forest line have organic material (dirt, leaves, bark) on the ground below the trees. The organic material decomposes and feeds the trees. The trees receive constant nutrients this way. The rocks around the thinning tree do not provide any nutrients for the tree, and it shows. By removing the rocks and installing mulch, the tree will start to receive nutrients as the mulch decomposes. The mulch will also keep the tree roots moist. As a best practice and to help keep your trees in optimal health, remove grass from around tree trunks and install mulch.
