Tree roots - Knowledgebase Question

I have river birches. Should I always keep the roots covered? Mulch (which blows away, or walks away!) Or can I plant something that work as well?

I'd plant a groundcover such as Wintercreeper rather than try to keep mulch under the tree.

Best wishes with your landscape!
