Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be considered given however extreme weather condition can take its toll. It is essential to keep trees healthy and aim to prevent illness or weather condition damage.
Among the first things you can do is find out about the trees you want to care for and their particular requirements. If you’re not exactly sure about the kind of tree you have, there are numerous resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When looking into trees, the main points to look out for are:
- Type of soil required

As soon as you know more about your trees, follow these 5 suggestions 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 location 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.
Safeguard the bark.
Think of the bark as an armour that safeguards the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will avoid infections, diseases or insect activity. Look out for prospective threats that might harm tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to prevent breakage and make sure trees are visible during the night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again hits bark at the same location can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your yard, make sure these don’t directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches do not get braided.
- Yard equipment: don; t get lawn equipment near to the tree trunks as this can cause serious damage to the bark.
Trees normally prosper well in existing moisture conditions and don’t require any extra watering. However, depending upon your local environment, you may have to water your trees during extended periods of drought. If you do need to water trees in the summer, a periodic deep watering is chosen to a frequent misting. In winter season trees should not require any watering.
We’ve formerly written about pruning trees as it’s a vital part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can always hire an expert. The main points to watch out for are:.
- Crossing branches: remove the smaller branch so the stronger one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will assist the tree heal.
Low branches: remove branches that are low and are susceptible to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also remove low branches for aesthetic functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 ways you can make sure that the soil around your tree is rich in nutrients.
- Use mulch. Spread out a layer of mulch around your tree, about 2 to 4 inches thick. The mulch does not need to touch the trunk.
- Plant lawn or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Ensure your plants can thrive in the shade and that their roots don’t take on the tree.
