I live in the city and I want to collect local tree cuttings and use it as mulch. For whatever reason I'm always hesitant because 90 percent of the time I dont know what kind of tree it is that ill be putting in my garden and whether or not it has allopathic qualities. Is there anyway of testing this? I really want to tap into this unused goldmine of mulch.
