Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be taken for granted but extreme weather condition can take its toll. It’s important to keep trees healthy and attempt to avoid diseases or weather condition damage.
One of the first things you can do is learn more about the trees you want to take care of and their specific requirements. If you’re unsure about the kind of tree you have, there are numerous resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When looking into trees, the main things to watch out for are:
- Type of soil required
- Amount of water required
- Specific sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
Once you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 tips to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Safeguard 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 sensitive. The key is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep taking in water and oxygen.
Safeguard the bark.
Think of the bark as an armour that protects the tree. Securing the tree bark will prevent infections, illness or insect activity. Look out for possible dangers that could harm tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to avoid breakage and ensure trees show up at night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that over and over again hits bark at the very same location can trigger damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your yard, ensure these do not directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches do not get braided.
- Yard equipment: wear; t get lawn equipment close to the tree trunks as this can cause serious damage to the bark.
Trees typically prosper well in existing moisture conditions and don’t need any additional watering. However, depending on your regional climate, 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 preferred to a regular misting. In winter trees shouldn’t need any watering.
We’ve previously written about pruning trees as it’s a vital part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly hire a professional. The main points to keep an eye out for are:.
- Crossing branches: remove the smaller sized branch so the more powerful one can grow without being harmed.
- Broken and dead branches: a tidy cut will assist the tree recover.
Low branches: get rid of branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can also eliminate low branches for visual functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two 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 need to touch the trunk.
- Plant grass or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and enhance the soil. Ensure your plants can thrive in the shade and that their roots do not take on the tree.
