Cleveland Heights Tree Company | Spring Mulching for Your Trees

Cleveland Organic Mulch Supplier


  • Have you added mulch to your trees before?
  • Have you waited too long and never got around to actually mulching?
  • Or maybe you mulched last year.

Do you need a Cleveland Heights Mulch company? With spring just around the corner, it is time to start thinking about mulching your trees. Whatever point you are at, mulch is more than just something to put around your trees to make them look nicer. Mulch actually helps keep your Cleveland Heights trees healthy!

Even if you surrounded your trees with mulch last year, it’s time for some fresh material as it is probably not doing much to help your trees at this point. Mulch helps keep your tree healthy in many ways. It keeps the soil cool and moist so that your trees retain their water levels while preventing weeds from popping up on your landscaping. Mulch also stops soil runoff if there is rain flooding in the area surrounding your tree so that your tree’s roots stay firmly rooted into the ground.

There are two types of mulch for you to think about: organic and inorganic. Organic mulch is most likely the first kind you think of and see most often. This type of mulch is usually made of wood chips, pieces of bark, shredded leaves, or compost and will need to be replaced periodically to keep it fresh and healthy for your trees. Inorganic mulch like landscape fabric and stones are great for low maintenance and long-term, but they provide no additional vitamins to your trees. We at VanCuren recommend using organic mulch to provide the most value to your trees.

Apply mulch Correctly

  • Place mulch near your tree approximately 3-4 inches thick
  • Push away mulch from around the trunk and base to make a donut shape. It should be about 4 inches away from the base of your tree all the way around
  • Spread out mulch to 4-5 feet in diameter in the surrounding area
