Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be considered granted but extreme weather condition can take its toll. It is very important to keep trees healthy and try to prevent diseases or weather damage.
One of the very first things you can do is find out about the trees you wish to care for and their specific needs. If you’re uncertain about the kind of tree you have, there are many resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When researching trees, the main things to keep an eye out for are:
- Type of soil needed
- Amount of water required
- Particular sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
When you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 pointers to keep your trees durable and healthy.
Safeguard the roots.
Concentrate on the zone around a tree approximately where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone but this is the area where roots are more delicate. The secret is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep absorbing water and oxygen.
Safeguard the bark.
Consider the bark as an armour that protects the tree. Protecting the tree bark will prevent infections, illness or insect activity. Keep an eye out for possible threats that might harm tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Remove lower branches to prevent damage and make certain trees are visible in the evening.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that over and over again strikes bark at the very same place can cause damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your lawn, ensure these don’t straight hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches don’t get laced.
- Yard devices: put on; t get lawn devices near to the tree trunks as this can trigger severe damage to the bark.
Trees normally flourish well in existing moisture conditions and do not require any extra watering. Nevertheless, depending on your local environment, you might need to water your trees throughout extended durations of drought. If you do need to water trees in the summer, a periodic deep watering is preferred to a regular misting. In winter season trees shouldn’t require any watering.
We’ve previously blogged about pruning trees as it’s a vital part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly work with a professional. The main things to watch out for are:.
- Crossing branches: remove the smaller branch so the more powerful one can grow without being harmed.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will assist the tree recover.
Low branches: get rid of branches that are low and are vulnerable to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can likewise remove low branches for visual purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two ways you can make certain that the soil around your tree is rich 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 turf or some type of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and enhance the soil. Make certain your plants can prosper in the shade and that their roots do not take on the tree.
