Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be considered given however intense weather can take its toll. It is essential to keep trees healthy and aim to prevent illness or weather damage.
One of the first things you can do is find out about the trees you want to take care of and their specific requirements. If you’re not sure about the sort of tree you have, there are numerous resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When investigating trees, the main things to look out for are:
- Type of soil needed
- Amount of water required
- Specific level of sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
As soon as you know more about your trees, follow these 5 tips to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Secure the roots.
Focus on the zone around a tree up to where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone however 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 soaking up water and oxygen.
Secure the bark.
Think of the bark as an armour that protects the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will avoid infections, diseases or insect activity. Keep an eye out for potential threats that could damage tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to avoid damage and make sure trees show up at night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again strikes bark at the same location can cause damage. If you use sprinklers to water your yard, make sure these do not directly strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches do not get entwined.
- Yard devices: put on; t get yard equipment near the tree trunks as this can cause major damage to the bark.
Trees normally thrive well in existing moisture conditions and don’t need any extra watering. Nevertheless, depending on your regional environment, you may need to water your trees during extended durations of drought. If you do need to water trees in the summer, an occasional deep watering is chosen to a frequent misting. In winter trees shouldn’t require any watering.
We’ve previously discussed pruning trees as it’s an essential part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly work with a professional. The main things to look out for are:.
- Crossing branches: get rid of the smaller branch so the stronger one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a tidy cut will help the tree heal.
Low branches: remove branches that are low and are susceptible to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can likewise 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 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 material will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Make sure your plants can flourish in the shade and that their roots do not compete with the tree.
