Mulching 101

Mulching with coarse woody debris protects trees from mechanical damage, mitigates soil temperature and moisture extremes, and helps build soils. Here are some tips to mulch properly:
  1. Avoid mulching the trunk of trees. (See the diagram above)
  2. Mulch as wide an area as possible.
  3. The best mulches are full of organic coarse debris, like arborist wood chips.
  4. Get rid of turf and weeds by sheet mulching.
  5. Mulch thick -4 inches deep - to inhibit weed growth.
That's about it - if you need wood chips in the Omaha area please contact us, American Arborist would be happy to provide them for you.
