Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be taken for given but 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 find out about the trees you wish to take care of and their particular requirements. If you’re unsure 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 points to keep an eye out for are:
- Kind of soil required
- Amount of water required
- Specific sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
When you know more about your trees, follow these 5 pointers to keep your trees durable and healthy.
Secure the roots.
Concentrate on the zone around a tree up to where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone but this is the location where roots are more sensitive. 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 protects the tree. Securing the tree bark will prevent infections, diseases or insect activity. Watch out for potential dangers that could damage tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Remove lower branches to prevent breakage and make sure trees show up at night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that repetitively hits bark at the same location can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, ensure these don’t directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches do not get braided.
- Yard devices: don; t get yard devices near to the tree trunks as this can trigger major damage to the bark.
Trees usually flourish well in existing moisture conditions and do not need any extra watering. However, depending upon your regional environment, you might have to water your trees during 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 trees shouldn’t require any watering.
We’ve formerly written about pruning trees as it’s an important part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you know what you are doing, otherwise you can always employ an expert. The main things to look out for are:.
- Crossing branches: get rid of the smaller sized branch so the stronger one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will help the tree recover.
Low branches: eliminate branches that are low and are susceptible to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also remove low branches for visual functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two methods you can ensure that the soil around your tree is rich in nutrients.
- Usage 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 product will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Ensure your plants can prosper in the shade and that their roots don’t take on the tree.
