Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be taken for given however intense weather can take its toll. It is very important to keep trees healthy and aim to prevent diseases or weather damage.
Among the very first things you can do is learn more about the trees you wish to look after and their specific requirements. If you’re unsure about the kind of tree you have, there are numerous resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When researching trees, the main points to look out for are:
- Kind of soil required
- Amount of water needed
- Particular level of sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
Once you know more about your trees, follow these 5 ideas to keep your trees resistant and healthy.
Safeguard the roots.
Focus on the zone around a tree approximately where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone however this is the location where roots are more sensitive. The key is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep absorbing water and oxygen.
Secure the bark.
Think about the bark as an armour that safeguards the tree. Protecting the tree bark will prevent infections, diseases or insect activity. Watch out for possible risks that could harm tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to prevent breakage and make certain trees are visible in the evening.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again hits bark at the exact same place can cause damage. If you use sprinklers to water your yard, make certain these do not straight hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches don’t get braided.
- Lawn devices: don; t get yard devices near to the tree trunks as this can cause serious damage to the bark.
Trees typically grow well in existing moisture conditions and don’t require any extra watering. However, depending on your local environment, you may need to water your trees throughout extended periods of drought. If you do have to water trees in the summer season, an occasional deep watering is chosen to a frequent misting. In winter season trees should not need any watering.
We’ve previously blogged about pruning trees as it’s an essential part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you know what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly hire a professional. The main things to look out for are:.
- Crossing branches: eliminate the smaller branch so the stronger one can grow without being harmed.
- Broken and dead branches: a tidy cut will assist the tree heal.
Low branches: get rid of branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an effect). 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 out a layer of mulch around your tree, about 2 to 4 inches thick. The mulch does not have to touch the trunk.
- Plant grass or some type of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and enhance the soil. Make certain your plants can thrive in the shade and that their roots do not compete with the tree.
