Deep Root Fertilization
Another way trees can be prepared for springtime growth is through the application of organic mulch to trees. However, property owners should be careful to avoid creating volcano-shaped mounds of mulch that can actually hinder tree health and growth. Organic mulch should be applied around the perimeter of the tree, but should not contact the tree base at all. Instead, there should be a 3-4 inch layer of mulch underneath most of the tree’s canopy for maximum benefit. Mulch protects the tree’s moisture levels and can help deter weed growth, which can rob trees of their nutrient and energy resources.
