Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be taken for approved however extreme weather can take its toll. It’s important to keep trees healthy and try to avoid illness 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 requirements. If you’re not exactly sure about the type of tree you have, there are numerous resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When looking into trees, the main things to look out for are:
- Kind of soil required
- Amount of water needed
- Specific level of sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
When you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 ideas to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Protect the roots.
Focus on the zone around a tree up to where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone but 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.
Protect the bark.
Consider the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Protecting the tree bark will prevent infections, diseases or insect activity. Keep an eye out for prospective threats that could harm tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Remove lower branches to prevent damage and make sure trees are visible during the night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that over and over again hits bark at the very same location can cause damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your yard, make sure these do not straight strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches do not get laced.
- Yard equipment: wear; t get lawn devices close to the tree trunks as this can cause severe damage to the bark.
Trees typically thrive well in existing moisture conditions and do not need any extra watering. However, depending on your local environment, you might have to water your trees throughout extended periods of drought. If you do need to water trees in the summer season, a periodic deep watering is preferred to a frequent 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 know exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly hire a professional. The main points to keep an eye out for are:.
- Crossing branches: get rid of the smaller branch so the more powerful one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a tidy cut will help the tree heal.
Low branches: eliminate branches that are low and are susceptible to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can also get rid of 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.
- 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 material will decay in the ground and enhance the soil. Make certain your plants can grow in the shade and that their roots don’t compete with the tree.
