I have planted a new peach tree. Should I put mulch (pine straw) around it? Thank you.

Mulching around trees and other plants is always a good idea, especially organic types like pine straw, shredded bark, leaves, etc. When applying mulch around your tree, keep it at least an inch away from the trunk and about 2-4 inches thick.
