The Silent Revolution
For a fraction of the cost of maintenance, mulch helps trees stay healthy and safe. Mulch quietly intercepts rain, reduces evaporation, moderates soil temperature, suppresses weeds, improves soil structure, lessens compaction, attracts soil animals, increases root growth, while adding a pleasing texture to the landscape. Trees come from the forest. Forest trees benefit from falling debris (litter). Mulch helps urban soils to return to those conditions found in fertile forests. A consulting arborist can advise you on how best to mulch. The next time you walk your dog through the neighborhood, take a peek under the healthiest trees; you’ll likely find a sizeable mulch-bed (photos copyright Randy Cyr).
