Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can frequently be considered approved however intense weather condition can take its toll. It’s important to keep trees healthy and try to prevent illness or weather damage.
Among the very first things you can do is discover the trees you wish to look after and their specific needs. If you’re not exactly sure about the kind 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 watch out for are:
- Kind of soil required
- Quantity of water required

Once you know more about your trees, follow these 5 tips to keep your trees resistant and healthy.
Secure the roots.
Focus on the zone around a tree approximately where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone but this is the area where roots are more delicate. The key is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep taking in water and oxygen.
Secure the bark.
Think of the bark as an armour that safeguards the tree. Securing the tree bark will prevent infections, illness or insect activity. Watch out for possible dangers that could harm tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to avoid damage and ensure trees are visible during the night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again strikes bark at the very same place can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, make certain these do not directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches don’t get entwined.
- Yard devices: don; t get yard equipment near to the tree trunks as this can trigger major damage to the bark.
Trees typically thrive well in existing wetness conditions and do not require any additional watering. However, depending on 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 preferred to a frequent misting. In winter season trees should not need any watering.
We’ve previously blogged about pruning trees as it’s a vital part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand what you are doing, otherwise you can always work with an expert. The main points to watch out for are:.
- Crossing branches: get rid of the smaller sized branch so the more powerful one can grow without being harmed.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will assist the tree recover.
Low branches: get rid of branches that are low and are vulnerable to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can likewise remove low branches for aesthetic functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two ways you can make sure that the soil around your tree is rich in nutrients.
- Use mulch. Spread 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 product will decay in the ground and enhance the soil. Ensure your plants can flourish in the shade and that their roots don’t compete with the tree.
