Do you have snow on the ground? Six inches of snow will provide a lot of 
insolation. Unless it is a species that tends to be winter tender they should 
be OK. But 6 inches of mulch will not hurt anything, just keep it away from 
the tree trunk as that can provide cover for hungry mice and they chew the 
cambium layer.
