Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be taken for approved but intense weather can take its toll. It’s important to keep trees healthy and try to prevent diseases or weather condition damage.
One of the first things you can do is find out about the trees you want to look after and their specific requirements. If you’re uncertain about the type 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 things to look out for are:
- Type of soil needed
- Quantity of water needed
- Specific sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
As soon as you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 tips to keep your trees durable and healthy.
Protect 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 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.
Think about the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will avoid infections, diseases or insect activity. Look out for potential risks that could damage tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to avoid damage and make sure trees show up during the night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that repetitively hits bark at the exact same location can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your yard, make sure these don’t directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches don’t get braided.
- Yard equipment: put on; t get lawn equipment near the tree trunks as this can cause major damage to the bark.
Trees generally prosper well in existing moisture conditions and don’t require any extra watering. Nevertheless, depending on your regional climate, you might need to water your trees during extended periods of dry spell. 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 formerly written about pruning trees as it’s a crucial part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly employ an expert. The main points to look out for are:.
- Crossing branches: eliminate the smaller branch so the stronger one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a tidy cut will assist the tree recover.
Low branches: eliminate branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also eliminate low branches for visual purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two ways 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 lawn or some type of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Make sure your plants can prosper in the shade and that their roots do not take on the tree.
