I use hardwood mulches exclusively around my trees and shrubs. Not so much around other plantings. I don't necessarily disagree with the comments made by the presenter but... I don't believe the pH would be altered to the extent we would have anything to worry about around tree bases. I prefer pine straw mixed with anything I can get my hands on around recently planted forbs.
