Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be considered granted however intense weather can take its toll. It is very important to keep trees healthy and attempt to avoid diseases or weather damage.
One of the first things you can do is learn about the trees you wish to care for and their specific requirements. If you’re not sure about the type of tree you have, there are many resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When researching trees, the main things to look out for are:
- Type of soil required
- Quantity of water required
- Particular sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
Once you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 ideas to keep your trees durable and healthy.
Secure the roots.
Focus on the zone around a tree approximately where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone however this is the area where roots are more delicate. The secret is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep absorbing water and oxygen.
Secure the bark.
Think of the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Protecting the tree bark will avoid infections, illness or insect activity. Keep an eye out for prospective threats that might damage tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to prevent breakage and make sure trees are visible during the night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that repetitively strikes bark at the exact same location can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, make certain these don’t straight strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches do not get braided.
- Lawn devices: put on; t get yard equipment near to the tree trunks as this can trigger severe damage to the bark.
Trees normally grow well in existing moisture conditions and do not need any additional watering. Nevertheless, depending on your local climate, you may need to water your trees during extended durations of drought. If you do have to water trees in the summer, a periodic deep watering is preferred to a regular misting. In winter trees shouldn’t require any watering.
We’ve previously blogged about pruning trees as it’s a crucial part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you know exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can always employ an expert. The main things to keep an eye out for are:.
- Crossing branches: get rid of the smaller branch so the stronger one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a tidy cut will help the tree recover.
Low branches: eliminate branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also eliminate low branches for visual purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two methods you can ensure that the soil around your tree is abundant in nutrients.
- Use mulch. Spread a layer of mulch around your tree, about 2 to 4 inches thick. The mulch does not have to touch the trunk.
- Plant yard or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and enhance the soil. Make sure your plants can thrive in the shade and that their roots don’t take on the tree.
