OTTAWA TREE MULCHING

Mulch is great for your trees, and is one of the most simple things you can do to keep your trees beautiful and happy. Croft Tree Experts offers 100% organic arborist mulch, which offers the greatest benefit to your trees and their surrounding environment. Our fresh arborist mulch chips are loaded with the nutrients that your plant roots seek and are superior to store-bought mulch chips which are typically made exclusively from waxy bark layers and not ideal for gardens.

Our arborist mulch chips are the by-product of tree work and includes mostly top-growth, making them ideal for your trees and garden. Arborist mulch compacts less than store-bought mulch, meaning you won’t end up with an impenetrable mat of mulch which prevents crucial moisture from reaching the roots. Make sure your trees have the best conditions to thrive in.

Arborist Mulch Tree Mulching has many benefits, including:

Preventing the growth of weeds by acting as a natural barrier, preventing most weed seeds from sprouting.

Slowing the evaporation of water by retaining water and protecting your soil from the sun.

Controlling temperature fluctuations by insulating your soil ensuring it is cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter

Promoting soil fertility by slowly releasing organic nutrients into the soil, promoting growth.

Ensuring Roots Grow Stronger by ensuring your trees aren’t competing for space, nutrients, and water with your grass.

Making your trees look great by adding a finishing touch to your landscaping.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How much mulch should I put around a tree?

Trees, especially young ones, typically benefit most from a 2- to 3-inch layer of mulch around their base. However, for the first 12 inches immediately surrounding the trunk, thin the mulch layer so that it just covers the soil. This will prevent the common problems associated with excessive mulching.

Should trees be mulched?

Mulch brings a number of benefits to your lawn and garden.

  • Mulch keeps moisture in the soil
  • Organic mulches break down and contribute to soil health
  • It helps with weed control
  • Mulch also prevents injury in winter, from erosion and from lawn mowers, etc.
  • Some wood mulch can repel fleas, ticks and other unwanted insects
Should old mulch be removed?

Removing old mulch is unnecessary. Mulch naturally breaks down, adding beneficial nutrients and other organic matter to the soil. However, adding new mulch on top of the old mulch is optimal for your trees.
