Trees bring so much pleasure to us mere mortals, both aesthetically and environmentally. Sadly, there are times when a tree needs to be removed. It could be diseased, in decline, damaged as a result of a storm or insect pests. Removing the said tree is a job for the expert’s at Northern Tree Services.
But what happens to the tree once it’s removed?
This is where a genuine win-win situation begins. Yes, it’s sad to see a beloved tree disappear but thanks to our expertarboristsand modern machinery that same tree can help sustain new life and benefit other trees and plants in your garden.
What is mulch?
Mulch is any shredded vegetation material you spread on the top of the ground and particularly in a garden.
Mulch insulates the soil, keeping the harsh sun from damaging the root system and keeps valuable moisture in the soil. It also assists in keeping weeds down, it looks natural, and is a fantastic help for plants as it adds vital nutrients into the soil as it breaks down and decomposes. It encourages healthy growth, improve soil quality and attracts valuable worm activity. And the best news is that any tree can easily be turned into mulch. What you garden loses when you lose a tree, your garden gains in spades when the tree is re-cycled and turned into mulch.
Maintaining your garden becomes less expensive because mulching means you require less fertilizer and less water. Up to 10cm of mulch on your garden is all it takes. It’s simple to apply and your plants will thank you for it.
There are two simple rules when mulching.
- Best results are achieved when the mulch is spread well beyond the drip line or the leaf canopy of the tree.
- Apply it to all your new plants, and around your established plants in early spring, helping to keep the winter rains in the soil for the hot summer months
