Avoid killing trees with mulch

To the editor:

Now that spring has arrived, homeowners and landscapers are hard at work beautifying our town. It’s a good time, therefore, to be reminded that mulching the bottoms of our lovely trees is a good way to kill them. Please be sure not to place mulch around the bottoms of tree trunks, so we can continue to enjoy their beauty. For more information, just google “mulch volcanoes,” follow best practices, and look forward to a shady summer.
