compost them first. They will get hot and kill off the seeds ect. Had a guy want all the grass clipping we could give him. piled them four ft deep. He let them decompose a bout six months. Tilled it into the sandy soil and planted his garden. Had wonderful huge plants now fruit on the plants. LOL all nitrogen.

Grass clippings will help the ground to retain moisture but it will also retain fungus and potentially harmful insects. If your soil is sandy, and you incorporate the clippings it would help the tree during dry spells, but tilling it in would be hard on the roots.

I put them around under the tree, but avoid piling against the trunk. That can cause the bark to rot.

Make sure the clippings are not treated with any herbicide.

If the grass clippings contain seed, then you may end up with grass growing in the flower beds.

I don't know about trees, but around flowers or vegetable plants grass clippings make a nice mulch. Just don't put down more than an inch or two deep at a time to avoid mold.
