Mulch seems to be a very complex topic. I will be planting 3 acres of Tuber aestivum var. uncinatum this fall (south-eastern Ontario) and was wondering if anyone might have recommendations based on their own experience. My own research has me leaning towards geotextile fabric, a 2014 study recommends white, however I am reticent considering the location of the orchard. It can get so cold in Canada. Or would that matter considering the trees would be dormant during the late fall and early winter, therefore the developing mycorrhizae systems would be safe? What are your thoughts. I have also looked into plastic mulch, cork mats, which can be very expensive, jute mats, and hardwood mulch, which would not affect the ph of the soil (and may actually help maintain the alkalinity of the soil around the trees). What are your thoughts?
