      Anything you can do to mitigate washing of soil in really hard rains and
      slow down runoff, especially on steeper slopes, will help your trees
      tremendously and probably help them survive drought as well. Sawdust, wood
      chips from tree trimming operations, any kind of compost spread on the
      surface are all good materials and usually free to get.



      Trees should put down roots deep enough to not be impacted by woody material
      temporarily making nitrogen available at the surface because of
      decomposition and eventually will provide needed nutrients to promote
      growth.
