Myths About Trees
A) One of the greatest myths about trees is that they require disturbingly high amounts of water. Trees can actually survive droughts for extended periods of time on very small amounts of water. In fact in studies done by The San Diego Urban Region Council it was found that many trees could live off of less than twenty dollars a year in water.
B) Another common myth is that trees need to be completely surrounded by mulch to prosper. The truth is mulch is very valuable it kills weeds, holds water, and protects roots from intense climates. Too much mulch can prevent hydration which is extremely unhealthy for the tree.
