    What is overmulching

    Tree Surgeons

    I've been advised not to 'overmulch' my tree. I was too shy to admit to the individual that I've no idea what that means! Could you please explain the term to me? Thank you :)

    "So what it means is to basically not apply too much mulch at the base of the tree."

    And and if it’s to overmulching the roots die."
