Apply mulch in a "doughnut" shape in the drip zone of trees & shrubs, not a "volcano". Excessive mulching leads to distress of trees, encouraging surface roots to grow into the mulch as well as rot organisms & insects to invade the soft bark tissue covered by mulch. Worst materials: fresh grass clippings, peat moss, sawdust, ground up rubber, stones, pavers or black plastic. Best mulch choices: shredded hardwood mulch, organic mulch, recycled pallets, ground red pine bark & pine straw. -Ali C.
