Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be considered granted but intense weather can take its toll. It’s important to keep trees healthy and aim to avoid illness or weather damage.
One of the very 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 type of tree you have, there are lots of resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When researching trees, the main points to watch out for are:
- Type of soil required
- Quantity of water needed
- Specific level of sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
As soon as you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 tips 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 however 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 taking in water and oxygen.
Safeguard the bark.
Consider the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will prevent infections, diseases or insect activity. Watch out for possible threats that might damage tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to avoid damage and make sure trees show up in the evening.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that repetitively hits bark at the same place can trigger damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your lawn, make certain these do not directly strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches do not get entwined.
- Lawn devices: put on; t get yard devices near to the tree trunks as this can cause severe damage to the bark.
Trees normally flourish well in existing moisture conditions and do not require any extra watering. However, depending on your regional climate, you may have to water your trees throughout extended durations of dry spell. If you do have to water trees in the summertime, a periodic deep watering is preferred to a frequent misting. In winter season trees should not require 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 know exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can always hire a professional. The main things to look out for are:.
- Crossing branches: remove the smaller sized branch so the stronger one can grow without being harmed.
- Broken and dead branches: a tidy cut will assist the tree recover.
Low branches: remove branches that are low and are vulnerable to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also remove low branches for visual functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 methods you can make sure that the soil around your tree is abundant 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 turf or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and enrich the soil. Make certain your plants can prosper in the shade and that their roots don’t compete with the tree.
