CC Arborist mulch volcano

A mulch volcano: the use of too much mulch around the tree. And mulch should never be placed against the trunk.

Trees – everyone has one in his or her yard. And everyone has an opinion about them.

Many homeowners rely on their neighbors for “advice” regarding their trees. Often, this advice is incorrect or inaccurate and is simply passed on from person to person. As I have said many times, there are three things that will get you in trouble with your neighbor – kids, dogs, and trees. I can only help you with the latter; the other two issues will have to be resolved among yourselves.
