Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be considered approved but extreme weather can take its toll. It is very important to keep trees healthy and aim to prevent diseases or weather damage.
One of the first things you can do is learn more about the trees you wish to care for and their particular needs. If you’re uncertain about the type of tree you have, there are lots of resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When investigating trees, the main points to look out for are:
- Kind of soil needed
- Quantity of water needed
- Specific sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
Once you know more about your trees, follow these 5 ideas to keep your trees resistant and healthy.
Protect 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 location where roots are more sensitive. The secret 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 protects the tree. Securing the tree bark will avoid infections, diseases or insect activity. Look out for prospective risks that could damage tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Remove lower branches to avoid damage and make certain trees are visible during the night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that over and over again strikes bark at the exact same place can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, ensure these do not directly strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches don’t get braided.
- Yard equipment: don; t get lawn devices close to the tree trunks as this can cause major damage to the bark.
Trees normally grow well in existing moisture conditions and don’t require any additional watering. Nevertheless, depending on your regional climate, you might need to water your trees during extended durations of dry spell. If you do need to water trees in the summertime, a periodic deep watering is chosen to a frequent misting. In winter trees should not 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 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 tidy cut will help the tree heal.
Low branches: eliminate branches that are low and are susceptible to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also get rid of low branches for aesthetic purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two methods you can ensure that the soil around your tree is abundant in nutrients.
- Use mulch. Spread a layer of mulch around your tree, about 2 to 4 inches thick. The mulch does not need to touch the trunk.
- Plant grass or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Make certain your plants can grow in the shade and that their roots do not compete with the tree.
