Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be taken for given but extreme weather can take its toll. It’s important to keep trees healthy and attempt to prevent illness or weather condition damage.
Among the first things you can do is learn more about the trees you want to care for and their specific requirements. If you’re unsure about the sort of tree you have, there are numerous resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When looking into trees, the main points to look out for are:
- Type of soil required
- Amount of water required
- Particular sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
Once you know more about your trees, follow these 5 suggestions to keep your trees resistant and healthy.
Safeguard 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 area where roots are more delicate. The key is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep taking in water and oxygen.
Secure the bark.
Consider the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will avoid infections, illness or insect activity. Keep an eye out for potential risks that might damage tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Remove lower branches to prevent damage and ensure trees show up during the night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that over and over again hits bark at the exact same location can cause damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, make sure these don’t directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches don’t get entwined.
- Yard equipment: don; t get yard equipment near to the tree trunks as this can cause severe damage to the bark.
Trees usually grow well in existing moisture conditions and don’t need any extra watering. However, depending on your regional environment, you may have to water your trees throughout extended durations of dry spell. If you do have to water trees in the summertime, an occasional deep watering is preferred to a regular misting. In winter trees shouldn’t require any watering.
We’ve previously discussed pruning trees as it’s an important part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can always hire a professional. The main things to look out for are:.
- Crossing branches: get rid of the smaller branch so the stronger one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a tidy cut will assist the tree heal.
Low branches: eliminate branches that are low and are vulnerable to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also eliminate low branches for visual functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 ways you can make sure 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 turf or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Ensure your plants can flourish in the shade and that their roots do not take on the tree.
