Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be considered approved however intense weather condition can take its toll. It is essential to keep trees healthy and try to prevent diseases or weather condition damage.
One of the very first things you can do is learn more about the trees you want to look after and their particular needs. If you’re not exactly sure about the kind 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 things to keep an eye out for are:
- Kind of soil needed
- Amount of water required
- Particular sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
Once you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 pointers 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 but this is the location 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.
Safeguard the bark.
Think of the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Securing the tree bark will prevent infections, illness or insect activity. Look out for possible risks that could damage tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Remove lower branches to prevent damage and make sure trees show up at night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that repetitively strikes bark at the very same location can cause damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your lawn, ensure these do not straight hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches do not get laced.
- Yard devices: wear; t get yard devices near to the tree trunks as this can trigger severe damage to the bark.
Trees usually thrive well in existing wetness conditions and don’t require any extra watering. However, depending upon your regional environment, you may need to water your trees during extended durations of drought. If you do have to water trees in the summertime, a periodic deep watering is chosen to a regular misting. In winter trees should not need any watering.
We’ve previously written about 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 constantly employ a professional. The main points to look out for are:.
- Crossing branches: get rid of the smaller branch so the stronger one can grow without being harmed.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will help the tree recover.
Low branches: get rid of branches that are low and are susceptible to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also eliminate low branches for aesthetic purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two methods you can make certain that the soil around your tree is rich in nutrients.
- Usage 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 lawn or some type of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Make sure your plants can prosper in the shade and that their roots don’t take on the tree.
