Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be considered granted however extreme weather condition can take its toll. It’s important to keep trees healthy and aim to avoid diseases or weather damage.
One of the very first things you can do is learn more about the trees you want to look after and their specific needs. If you’re not sure about the kind of tree you have, there are lots of resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When investigating trees, the main points to watch out for are:
- Type of soil needed
- Quantity of water required
- Specific level of sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
Once you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 ideas 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 sensitive. The key is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep taking in water and oxygen.
Protect the bark.
Think of the bark as an armour that protects the tree. Protecting the tree bark will prevent infections, diseases or insect activity. Keep an eye out for prospective dangers that might damage tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Remove lower branches to avoid damage and make certain trees show up at night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again strikes bark at the same location can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your yard, make sure these do not directly strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches do not get entwined.
- Yard equipment: don; t get lawn equipment near the tree trunks as this can cause major damage to the bark.
Trees usually thrive well in existing wetness conditions and do not require any additional watering. Nevertheless, depending upon your local environment, you might have to water your trees during extended durations of drought. If you do need to water trees in the summertime, a periodic deep watering is chosen to a frequent misting. In winter trees shouldn’t need any watering.
We’ve formerly discussed pruning trees as it’s an essential part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you know what you are doing, otherwise you can always hire an expert. The main things to look out for are:.
- Crossing branches: remove the smaller branch so the more powerful one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will assist the tree heal.
Low branches: eliminate branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also remove low branches for aesthetic functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 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 have to touch the trunk.
- Plant lawn or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and enrich the soil. Make certain your plants can grow in the shade and that their roots do not take on the tree.
