Lehigh Valley Tree and Shrub Mulching
We are often asked, "What is the best thing I can do for my trees and shrubs?" The correct answer is one word – MULCH.
Mulch restores a critical element to the natural environment of shrubs and trees. Tree mulching and shrub mulching gives them organic materials and nutrients. For young trees and shrubs, this is essential to their post-planting upkeep and care.
Mulch has several benefits including:
Retaining the moisture in the soil, cooling soil temperatures in the summer, adding warmth to roots in the winter, improving structure of the soil and restoring balance to the nutrient levels
Minimizing the risk of "mower blight," which can occur if the roots of trees or shrubs are damaged from string trimmers and lawn mowers
Conserving moisture in the roots of trees and shrubs, minimizing weed and turf grass competition, and adding organic matter to the soil
Improving the landscape aesthetic appeal of the property
With so many benefits, mulching is one of the easiest ways to increase the life and longevity of trees or shrubs. Although mulching is pretty straight forward, it has to be applied properly to ensure the life of the tree or shrub. The wrong type of mulch can kill a tree or shrub and likewise, if too much mulch is applied, a condition considered "mulch volcano," can also kill the tree or shrub.
