Expert Response

Trees should be mulched using an organic mulch three inches deep and at least six feet in diameter. Keep mulch at least four inches away from trunk of tree. Wood chips, pine needles,  shredded hardwood and softwood bark, cocoa hulls, leaves, and compost  are good organic mulches. https://extension.umn.edu/planting-and-growing-guides/watering-newly-planted-trees-and-shrubs
