2 trees that were planted just 2 yrs. ago aren't doing too well cuz of the drought, so I put pure peat moss around the trunks and now I'm just wondering if I did the right thing for the trees to stay hydrated or will it rot the trees?  I checked them the other day and the trunks were wet when I pushed some of the peat moss away from them. Did I place too much peat moss and now they're not getting enough air?

I don't know what kind of trees these are in our complex, but if it matters I'd guess maybe a maple or an oak cuz the leaves are big and a dark green and shaped into  possibly 5 tips...

would U help these poor trees before I kill them...  Thanks much!

I would take that all up and use wood chips...........leave room around the trunk for it to breathe.  I would ask someone living there what kind of tree it is and then look up care of it on the computer.  Watering after the sun goes down
