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 try to prevent illness or weather condition damage.
One of the very first things you can do is learn about the trees you want to look after and their particular requirements. If you’re uncertain about the type of tree you have, there are numerous resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When researching trees, the main points to keep an eye out for are:
- Type of soil required
- Amount of water needed
- Particular level of sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
When you know more about your trees, follow these 5 ideas to keep your trees resistant and healthy.
Protect the roots.
Focus on the zone around a tree approximately where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone however this is the area where roots are more delicate. The secret is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep soaking up water and oxygen.
Protect the bark.
Think about the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Protecting the tree bark will avoid infections, illness or insect activity. Look out for potential threats that could damage tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to avoid damage and make certain trees are visible in the evening.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again strikes bark at the exact same place can cause damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your yard, make sure these don’t straight hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches don’t get braided.
- Yard equipment: don; t get yard equipment close to the tree trunks as this can cause major damage to the bark.
Trees typically thrive well in existing wetness conditions and don’t require any additional watering. However, depending on your local climate, you might need to water your trees throughout extended periods of drought. If you do need to water trees in the summer, an occasional deep watering is preferred to a frequent misting. In winter trees should not 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 exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can always hire a professional. The main things to look out for are:.
- Crossing branches: get rid of the smaller branch so the stronger one can grow without being harmed.
- Broken and dead branches: a tidy cut will help the tree recover.
Low branches: get rid of branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also get rid of low branches for aesthetic purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 ways you can ensure that the soil around your tree is abundant in nutrients.
- Usage 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 lawn or some type of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and enhance the soil. Make sure your plants can flourish in the shade and that their roots do not take on the tree.
