Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be considered granted but intense weather can take its toll. It is very important to keep trees healthy and aim to avoid illness or weather condition damage.
One of the first things you can do is discover the trees you want to look after and their specific needs. If you’re not sure about the sort 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 keep an eye out for are:
- Kind of soil required
- Amount of water required
- Specific sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
As soon as you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 ideas to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Secure the roots.
Concentrate on the zone around a tree approximately 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 soaking up 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. Keep an eye out for prospective threats that could harm tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to avoid breakage and make sure trees are visible during the night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again hits bark at the exact same place can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, ensure these don’t straight strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches don’t get braided.
- Lawn equipment: wear; t get yard devices near the tree trunks as this can cause major damage to the bark.
Trees usually flourish well in existing wetness conditions and don’t need any extra watering. Nevertheless, depending upon 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, an occasional deep watering is preferred to a frequent misting. In winter season trees should not require any watering.
We’ve previously discussed pruning trees as it’s an important 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 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 recover.
Low branches: remove branches that are low and are vulnerable to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can likewise remove low branches for visual purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 ways you can make certain that the soil around your tree is abundant 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 yard or some type 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 compete with the tree.
