Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be considered granted however extreme weather condition can take its toll. It is very important to keep trees healthy and try to avoid illness or weather damage.
One of the very first things you can do is find out about the trees you want to take care of and their particular needs. If you’re not sure about the type of tree you have, there are lots of resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When looking into trees, the main points to watch out for are:
- Kind of soil needed
- Quantity of water needed
- Particular sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
When you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 suggestions to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Secure the roots.
Focus on the zone around a tree as much as where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone but this is the area where roots are more delicate. The key is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep absorbing water and oxygen.
Safeguard the bark.
Consider the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will prevent infections, illness or insect activity. Keep an eye out for potential dangers that could damage tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to avoid breakage and make certain trees are visible in the evening.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again strikes bark at the same place can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your yard, make sure these don’t straight strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches do not get braided.
- Yard devices: put on; t get yard devices near to the tree trunks as this can trigger major damage to the bark.
Trees generally prosper well in existing wetness conditions and do not require any extra watering. Nevertheless, depending on your local environment, you might need to water your trees during extended durations of drought. If you do need to water trees in the summer season, a periodic deep watering is chosen to a frequent misting. In winter season trees shouldn’t require 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 exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can always hire an expert. The main things to keep an eye out for are:.
- Crossing branches: remove the smaller branch so the more powerful one can grow without being harmed.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will assist the tree recover.
Low branches: get rid of branches that are low and are vulnerable to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can also remove low branches for visual functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 methods you can ensure that the soil around your tree is rich 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 enhance the soil. Make certain your plants can grow in the shade and that their roots do not take on the tree.
