WICHE: Too much mulch detrimental to trees

-A A +A
By Jeneen Wiche

Driving into town the other day, I was depressed about how this mulch thing has really gotten out of hand. 

Every tree looked like a telephone pole sticking out of a rounded mound or orange-looking mulch. All I could think was “poor trees.”

I keep writing about it, but is doesn’t seem people getting the message that too much mulch is a bad thing.

I know, some people have been liberated, but we still have some more work to do.

The bottom line: 2 inches of coarse mulch that is not piled around the trunk.
