Mulch and Mature Trees

I've seen a lot of talk lately about mulch around young trees. I get the purpose of it for them. However, living in a 98 year old house, we have some pretty old trees, should I be putting mulch around their base too?

FYI...I did add mulch to my tree after I removed the dirt and stone tree ring. Don't tell BXMurphy, but I am a big fan of mulch AND flowers. :D
My ears are BURNING! :)

So, I am looking at all these parking lots with mulched-over traffic islands and thinking, "Gee, why don't they just cement them over and paint them brown?" You just know that they will be weed-infested eyesores in just two months.

@BXMurphy I'm still waiting to see your flower beds.
I glyphed 'em down this last weekend! Just a weed-infested mess. Same thing every stinkin, year, too.

It is going to be a challenge but I think I am up to it with what I learned on TLF.

I don't know from flowers but I'm going to pack them in and hit it with Snapshot. That should do it... :)

(NICE write-up on the cool season lawn care guide at the top of the forum, BTW!!!!!)
