Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be taken for given however extreme weather condition can take its toll. It is essential to keep trees healthy and attempt 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 needs. If you’re not sure 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 researching trees, the main things to watch out for are:
- Type of soil needed
- Amount of water required
- Specific level of sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
Once you know more about your trees, follow these 5 ideas to keep your trees resistant and healthy.
Secure the roots.
Concentrate on the zone around a tree up to where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone however this is the area where roots are more sensitive. The secret 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 safeguards the tree. Securing the tree bark will prevent infections, diseases or insect activity. Watch out for prospective risks that could harm tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to prevent breakage and make sure trees are visible during the night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that repetitively hits bark at the very same location can trigger damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your lawn, make sure these do not directly strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches don’t get laced.
- Yard equipment: don; t get lawn equipment near the tree trunks as this can trigger major damage to the bark.
Trees typically prosper well in existing wetness conditions and don’t require any additional watering. However, depending upon your regional environment, you may need to water your trees throughout extended durations of drought. If you do have to water trees in the summertime, a periodic deep watering is chosen to a regular misting. In winter season trees should not require any watering.
We’ve previously blogged about pruning trees as it’s a crucial part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you know what you are doing, otherwise you can always work with an expert. The main things to look out for are:.
- Crossing branches: remove the smaller sized branch so the stronger one can grow without being harmed.
- Broken and dead branches: a tidy cut will assist the tree recover.
Low branches: eliminate branches that are low and are vulnerable to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can also remove low branches for aesthetic purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 methods you can ensure 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 have to touch the trunk.
- Plant yard or some type of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and enrich the soil. Ensure your plants can grow in the shade and that their roots don’t compete with the tree.
