Chris Walsh of Treetech – tree care specialists gives you tips about Mulching:

“Hi, this is our mulch pile.

We recycle this and use it on parks, gardens pathways. It s great for keeping moisture in with your trees and around your trees, and you can sell it.

So when applying your mulch, you want to make sure that it’s not hard up against the trunk of your tree. Needs to be back by about 2 centimeters, that stops rot in the cambium layer in the crown of the root where the stem meets so about 5 cm through here to stop it being hard up against the roots and against the trunk.

Remember when applying your mulch you want to bring it out to where the drip line is, the drip line is the end of where all the trees branches and leaves end, so we want to bring all our mulch out to here and that will eliminate mower damage, and weed eater damage because it will keep a nice layer of weed-free growth in there and moisture within the top parts of the roots.

At Treetech, we also target prune trees, we can thin them for light, we’re the guys that you call when you need your backyard tidied up.

Treetech works in a range of environments, we work in private households so we prune the backyard trees over the glass house or over your house, or in an urban forest environment where your streets or parks are for councils.

We also work in the rural environment where we clear live power lines with our power line utility crews, and trim hedges, so we work in quite a range of environments.

Commercial clients are the builders or the schools or the parks, and golf courses. What we do for these people is we remove trees, we work around trees when they’re building so we give them root monitoring, pruning to allow for scaffolding.

We also work for clients who want to remove trees late at night and can’t have this done during the day.
