Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be considered granted however intense weather condition can take its toll. It is essential to keep trees healthy and attempt to avoid diseases or weather condition damage.
Among the first things you can do is learn about the trees you wish to care for and their particular requirements. If you’re not exactly sure about the kind 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 watch out for are:
- Kind of soil needed
- Quantity of water required
- Particular sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
When you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 suggestions to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Safeguard the roots.
Focus on the zone around a tree approximately where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone but 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 absorbing water and oxygen.
Secure the bark.
Think of the bark as an armour that safeguards the tree. Protecting the tree bark will prevent infections, illness or insect activity. Look out for possible threats that could damage tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to avoid damage and make sure trees show up in the evening.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that over and over again strikes bark at the same place can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, ensure these don’t directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches don’t get laced.
- Lawn equipment: put on; t get lawn equipment near to the tree trunks as this can cause major damage to the bark.
Trees normally flourish well in existing moisture conditions and don’t require any additional watering. However, depending upon your local environment, you might have to water your trees throughout extended periods of dry spell. If you do need to water trees in the summer, a periodic deep watering is chosen to a regular misting. In winter trees should not need any watering.
We’ve formerly discussed pruning trees as it’s an essential part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly hire a professional. The main things to keep an eye out for are:.
- Crossing branches: get rid of the smaller branch so the more powerful one can grow without being harmed.
- Broken and dead branches: a tidy cut will assist the tree recover.
Low branches: eliminate branches that are low and are vulnerable to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can likewise remove low branches for aesthetic purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 ways you can ensure 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 grass or some type 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 don’t take on the tree.
