The article said to level the dirt with the top of the root ball. Then mentioned adding mulch. Should the mulch be above or at the top of the root ball?

The dirt should be level with the root ball. The mulch will be on top of it. Make sure the mulch doesn't press up against the trunk of the tree - leave a space of several inches around it to discourage disease and pests.
