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 avoid diseases or weather damage.
One of the very first things you can do is learn more about the trees you want to look after and their specific requirements. If you’re not sure about the type of tree you have, there are many resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When looking into trees, the main things to keep an eye out for are:
- Type of soil needed
- Amount of water needed
- Particular sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
As soon as you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 tips to keep your trees resistant and healthy.
Protect the roots.
Focus on the zone around a tree as much as 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 taking in water and oxygen.
Safeguard the bark.
Consider the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Securing the tree bark will prevent infections, illness or insect activity. Watch out for potential risks that might damage 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 repetitively strikes bark at the exact same place can cause damage. If you use sprinklers to water your yard, ensure these don’t directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches do not get entwined.
- Yard equipment: put on; t get lawn equipment close to the tree trunks as this can trigger severe damage to the bark.
Trees generally prosper well in existing moisture conditions and don’t need any extra watering. However, depending upon your local environment, you might have to water your trees during extended durations of dry spell. If you do have to water trees in the summer season, an occasional deep watering is chosen to a regular misting. In winter season trees shouldn’t require any watering.
We’ve formerly blogged about pruning trees as it’s a crucial 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 things to look out for are:.
- Crossing branches: remove the smaller branch so the stronger one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a tidy cut will help the tree heal.
Low branches: get rid of branches that are low and are vulnerable to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also eliminate low branches for aesthetic functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two ways you can make sure 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 need to touch the trunk.
- Plant lawn or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and enhance the soil. Ensure your plants can grow in the shade and that their roots do not compete with the tree.
