What are the benefits of using wood chips?

  • wood chips
    Saves labor – no weeding, less time watering
  • Saves water – far less watering is needed and there is more water absorption
  • Safer – no need for chemical weed killers or herbicides
  • Stimulates growth – mulched trees grow faster than unmulched trees
  • Makes trees more resistant to disease and insects
  • Keeps soil and roots from overheating in hot summers
  • Eliminates injury to trunk from mower collisions
  • Reduces soil compaction on roots
  • Nourishes the soil by adding nutrients as it decomposes
  • Eliminates the need for tilling and resultant root injury
  • Increase in earthworm population resulting in better aeration
  • Reduces bruising of fallen fruit under fruit trees
