The Benefits Of Adding Woodchips Underneath Trees

eTradeWire News/10682743
TORONTO - eTradeWire -- There are many benefits to putting woodchips under your trees. These can include retention of soil moisture, adding nutrient leaching when they decompose over time, and keep weeds and other invasive plants away. However, it's important to know if you aerate the root zone correctly before adding woodchips to your trees and gardens. This is going to drastically improve your plants oxygen supply and allow water leaching to get to the roots. When there is more oxygen allowed to get to the roots, you are going to see more growth from your plants. We are going to discuss how you should use woodchips throughout your gardens.

Where To Place Woodchips

Before you go and dump woodchips around your trees, there is a right and wrong way to go about this. When done correctly, there are many benefits to be had. If done incorrectly, there is a potential to harm the tree, as opposed to helping it. This typically happens when an excessive amount of woodchips get piled up around the roots, trunk, and the tree itself. You should never allow the woodchips to touch the trunk of a tree for long periods of time. If you do, moisture builds up within the chips and eventually causes the tree to rot. It will then die if this problem is not found in time.
