Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be taken for granted however intense weather condition can take its toll. It’s important to keep trees healthy and attempt to prevent diseases or weather condition damage.
One of the very first things you can do is learn more about the trees you want to take care of and their specific requirements. If you’re not exactly sure about the kind 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 needed
- Specific level of sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
Once you know more about your trees, follow these 5 tips to keep your trees durable and healthy.
Safeguard the roots.
Focus on the zone around a tree up to where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone but 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 absorbing water and oxygen.
Safeguard the bark.
Think about the bark as an armour that safeguards the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will prevent infections, illness or insect activity. Keep an eye out for potential risks that might damage 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 in the evening.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again strikes bark at the same location can trigger damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your lawn, make sure these don’t directly strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches don’t get laced.
- Yard equipment: don; t get yard devices close to the tree trunks as this can cause major damage to the bark.
Trees typically flourish well in existing wetness conditions and don’t need any extra watering. However, depending on your regional environment, you may have to water your trees during extended durations of dry spell. If you do have to water trees in the summer season, an occasional deep watering is preferred to a regular misting. In winter season trees should not need any watering.
We’ve formerly written about pruning trees as it’s a crucial part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand what you are doing, otherwise you can always work with a professional. The main things to watch out for are:.
- Crossing branches: get rid of the smaller sized branch so the more powerful one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a tidy cut will assist the tree heal.
Low branches: remove branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also eliminate low branches for aesthetic functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 ways you can make sure that the soil around your tree is abundant in nutrients.
- Use mulch. Spread out a layer of mulch around your tree, about 2 to 4 inches thick. The mulch does not need to touch the trunk.
- Plant turf or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Make certain your plants can flourish in the shade and that their roots do not compete with the tree.
