You do not have to have a tarp under your tent but it is highly recommended. Having a tarp under your tent can prevent holes and tear from appearing on the bottom of the tent as well as prevent moisture from the ground from soaking into your tent.
Should you put a tarp over your tent?
You should put a tarp over your tent since it will allow you to improve the tent water resistance and wind durability. Besides, it may protect your tent from pine needles and acorns. It can also cover your gear when you leave it outside and in some cases may even be a replacement for tents to save weight.
