The Q&A Archives: Mulching Around New Pines

Question: What is the best mulch to use around newly planted eastern pine trees

Answer: You can use any organic mulch material. I use compost but shredded leaves or even pine bark can be used. Keep the mulch a couple of inches away from the trunks of your trees though so it won't hold water against the bark and cause it to rot. Best wishes with your new trees!
