Hi there,
Good info about the cypress mulch origins, Julie, I guess we have to assume 
that is the case with much of what we get that isn't local. As far as the 
volcano mulching - I realize that it isn't very pretty, but if you mulch up 
to the base of a tree, tree girdling roots will form, ultimately killing the 
tree. In the twin cities we lost thousands of trees a couple of years ago 
(straight-line winds), most were found to have been planted too deep or 
mulched up to the base. We are still trying to recover the urban forest lost 
to Dutch Elm in the 70's.
Yours in the soil, Lisa from Mpls.
