We met, we mulched and we think you should too! Giving your trees, old and new, a thick layer of root-protecting mulch and it will give them the best start going into our warmer weather. If done properly ( at least 2 inches or more in a circle around the tree trunk but not touching it ) it will help retain moisture in the soil when you water and also keep moisture robbing weeds at bay. it only takes a few minutes and your trees will thank you! Not sure how to care for your trees? check out our tree care section at Ojaitrees.org.
