Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be taken for 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 learn about the trees you want to look after and their particular requirements. If you’re not exactly 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 investigating trees, the main things to look out for are:
- Type of soil required
- Amount of water required
- Specific sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
As soon as you understand 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 area where roots are more sensitive. The secret is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep taking in water and oxygen.
Protect the bark.
Consider the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Protecting the tree bark will avoid infections, diseases or insect activity. Watch out for potential risks that might harm tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to avoid damage and make sure trees show up at night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that repetitively strikes bark at the same location can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, ensure these don’t straight hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches do not get laced.
- Lawn devices: don; t get yard equipment near the tree trunks as this can cause serious damage to the bark.
Trees typically thrive well in existing wetness conditions and don’t need any additional watering. Nevertheless, depending upon your local climate, you may need to water your trees throughout extended periods of drought. If you do have to water trees in the summertime, an occasional deep watering is preferred to a regular misting. In winter season trees shouldn’t need any watering.
We’ve previously written about pruning trees as it’s an important part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you know exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can always hire a professional. The main things to keep an eye out for are:.
- Crossing branches: eliminate the smaller sized branch so the more powerful one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will assist the tree heal.
Low branches: eliminate branches that are low and are susceptible to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also get rid of low branches for aesthetic functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 methods 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 have to touch the trunk.
- Plant yard or some type of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and enhance the soil. Make certain your plants can thrive in the shade and that their roots do not take on the tree.
