As summer finally gets here, we are doing yard work again. When putting mulch around the base of your tree, don't mound it up like a volcano. This can cause issues with the bark at the base of the tree, resulting in problems. Instead, make a small, shallow, bowl like feature around the base of the tree to keep any water right there above the majority of the roots.
