I think you'll need only one bag of mulch for your entire collection of little trees. After planting, spread 2-3 inches of mulch around each tree, extending out 8-12" from the trunk. The mulch will help suppress weeds, slow water evaporation, and moderate soil temperatures in additiion to providing some nutrients as it decomposes. Enjoy your new trees!
