We focus a lot of our efforts on the above-ground portion of our trees. After all, it’s the part we can see. However, what’s underneath is just as important, which is why it’s a good idea to consider hiring tree mulching contractors.
What is Tree Mulching
Tree mulching is the process of using organic material like wood chips and leaves to provide your trees with the nutrients they need. These materials break down, retain moisture, and suppress weeds that your tree may need to compete with.
Using mulch around your tree’s base can also prevent damage while reducing how much weed eating and maintenance you need to do.

How to do Tree Mulching
If you’re new to tree care, we recommend relying on tree mulching contractors. They can advise on the best type of mulching materials, where to mulch around your tree, and how often you need to do it. From that point, you can decide whether you carry out tree mulching yourself or continue using a tree mulching service.
Use a mixture of decomposing wood chips and leaves and spread it 50mm deep around your tree’s base. You can then top this mixture up over time or rely on our Auckland arborists to provide regular maintenance programmes.
