Volcanos Kill Trees

Mulch should never be piled up against the tree trunk. Mulching in a “volcano” shape can make the tree more susceptible to fungus, insects, and rodents. Instead mulch in a “donut” shape. Keep mulch 6 inches from the trunk and mulch out as far as the branches extend above. See NJDEP link for more information.

“Healthy Trees, Healthy Cities”

The USDA Forest Service and its partner, The Nature Conservancy, teamed up for an eight part video series on “Healthy Trees, Healthy Cities.” This initiative seeks to protect the health of our nation’s trees, forests, and communities by creating a culture of stewardship that engages people in long-term stewardship and monitoring of the trees in their respective communities.
