Provision of Mulch Cover

Mulch combines with fallen leaves to decompose, recycle nutrients and provides important organic matter. This organic matter will be used by microbes, insects, small mammals and amphibians. Many species of insects use organic materials in garden spaces to overwinter.

The City’s tree crews produce chip to mulch natural areas. Leaves gathered by parks maintenance crews are also spread through the planting sites.
