Should trees be mulched?

Mulch can be very beneficial to a tree. Mulch helps the soil under the tree retain moisture and protects the trunk of the tree from damage caused by lawnmowers and grass trimmers. Mulch should be applied 2 to 4 inches deep under the tree but should not touch the trunk of the tree.
