Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be considered granted however extreme weather can take its toll. It’s important to keep trees healthy and try 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 specific requirements. If you’re unsure about the type of tree you have, there are numerous resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When researching trees, the main things to look out for are:
- Kind of soil required
- Amount of water needed
- Particular sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
As soon as you know more about your trees, follow these 5 pointers to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Safeguard the roots.
Concentrate on the zone around a tree approximately 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 taking in water and oxygen.
Secure the bark.
Think about the bark as an armour that safeguards the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will prevent infections, diseases or insect activity. Watch out for potential threats that could harm tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Remove lower branches to avoid breakage and ensure trees are visible at night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again hits bark at the same place can cause damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, make certain these do not straight hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches don’t get laced.
- Lawn equipment: wear; t get yard devices close to the tree trunks as this can cause serious damage to the bark.
Trees generally prosper well in existing moisture conditions and don’t require any additional watering. However, depending upon your local environment, you might have to water your trees during extended durations of drought. If you do have to water trees in the summer season, an occasional deep watering is preferred to a frequent misting. In winter trees shouldn’t require any watering.
We’ve formerly written about pruning trees as it’s a vital part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you know exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly employ an expert. The main points to keep an eye out for are:.
- Crossing branches: eliminate the smaller sized 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 prone to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can also remove low branches for visual purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two ways you can ensure that the soil around your tree is rich in nutrients.
- Usage 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. Ensure your plants can grow in the shade and that their roots do not compete with the tree.
