Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be taken for approved but extreme weather can take its toll. It is necessary to keep trees healthy and try to avoid diseases or weather condition damage.
One of the first things you can do is find out about the trees you want to care for and their particular requirements. If you’re unsure about the sort of tree you have, there are lots of resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When researching trees, the main points to keep an eye out for are:
- Type of soil needed
- Quantity of water needed
- Specific level of 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.
Focus on the zone around a tree as much as where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone but this is the area where roots are more sensitive. The key is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep soaking up water and oxygen.
Safeguard the bark.
Consider the bark as an armour that protects the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will prevent infections, diseases or insect activity. Keep an eye out for potential dangers that could damage tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to avoid damage and make certain trees are visible during the night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that repetitively hits bark at the same location can cause damage. If you use sprinklers to water your yard, make sure these do not straight hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches do not get entwined.
- Lawn devices: don; t get lawn equipment close to the tree trunks as this can trigger serious damage to the bark.
Trees normally flourish well in existing moisture conditions and don’t require any extra watering. Nevertheless, depending on 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, an occasional deep watering is preferred to a regular misting. In winter trees should not require any watering.
We’ve previously blogged about pruning trees as it’s a crucial part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you know what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly hire a professional. The main things to watch 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 assist the tree heal.
Low branches: remove branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also eliminate 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 out a layer of mulch around your tree, about 2 to 4 inches thick. The mulch does not need to touch the trunk.
- Plant yard 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.
