Mulching the area beneath your trees is one of simplest ways to improve tree health and resistance to pests and diseases. It’s important to use quality mulch and apply it correctly. In Northern Nevada and other areas with arid climates, always use organic mulch for your trees, rather than rocks, plastics, and other types of inorganic materials, which can negatively affect tree health.

 

Wood chip mulch is the best option for organic mulch. It insulates soil to limit evaporation so more water and nutrients are available to trees. As it breaks down, it adds organic matter and nutrients to soil, improving soil structure. It can also be used to prevent or relieve soil compaction and prevent erosion. Make sure to spread it evenly between 2-4 inches deep, and keep it a few inches away from touching the tree.
