Mulching a tree that you have planted recently is very essential because it will not only grow fast but it will get all other benefits from mulching that it does offer.
Mulching has thick layer protects the tree from harsh temperatures in that it does keep the soil cooler by stopping hot sun and wind from penetrating the soil of which it conserves the soil’s moisture and coolness. The sols that supports that tree that you recently planted and is growing fine since you applied mulch on it cannot be made to have erosion because the mulch on is very thick and heavy that heavy rains or strong winds cannot carry it away from the soil ten destroy the soil which will end up destroying the tree so mulching protects both soil and tree.
Mulching helps soil fertility in that it has materials that contain minerals and plant nutrients that are normally transferred from the mulch layer to the soil when the mulch is rained on that when it reaches the soil immediately it does improve the soil’s structure and all plants nutrients that were taken from the mulch layer improves the fertility of the soil. When farmers apply mulching to their farm before weeds start growing in them they will save their selves a lot of time since the weeds will be few so they will use less time to remove them and the need for cultivation will be reduced because mulching makes the soil to be loose always.
Mulching reduces fungal and rot diseases that may be caused when the soil comes in contact with the fruit and leaves of the plant especially if you mulch tomatoes or melons that are usually prone to fungal diseases. Mulching helps in keeping weeds out from the plant hence preventing root competition of which it will it enables the plant to get all the nutrients it might needed to grow as fast as possible and it will grow being healthy and strong.
The soil is protected from evaporation when you apply mulching to plants this happens when mulching reduces water use up to 75%b hence making it hard for evaporation to occur making the soil to be safe from being damaged and also the plant that is supported by the soil. The plants that you mulch will definitely grow fast even without you noticing because mulching encourages the worms that aerate the soil thus providing the soil with more fertiliser in form of warm casting which makes the soil to be healthy and also the soil because the fertiliser that will be in it is a natural fertiliser.
