As kids, many of us made lots of great memories thanks to the towering trees around us. We remember the tire swing in the backyard of our childhood home, the trees we’d climb while camping at the lake, or the family picnics in the shade of a giant oak. As we grow older, trees start to become the quiet backdrops of our lives.
Trees, like every organism, need to breathe.
Most plants benefit from an organic mulch covering the soil surface around them. A good organic mulch, such as hardwood bark mulch, conserves moisture, maintains a more even soil temperature, inhibits weed growth, and prevents soil compaction and erosion from rain and irrigation.
