Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be taken for approved but intense weather can take its toll. It’s important to keep trees healthy and aim to avoid illness or weather condition damage.
One of the first things you can do is learn about the trees you want to care for and their particular needs. If you’re not exactly 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 investigating trees, the main things to look out for are:
- Kind of soil needed
- Quantity of water needed
- Particular sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
As soon as you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 pointers to keep your trees resistant and healthy.
Protect the roots.
Focus on the zone around a tree up to where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone however 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.
Secure the bark.
Think of the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will avoid infections, illness or insect activity. Watch out for possible risks that might damage tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to avoid breakage and make sure trees are visible during the night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that over and over again strikes bark at the exact same place can cause damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, make sure these don’t directly strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches do not get laced.
- Lawn equipment: put on; t get yard equipment close to the tree trunks as this can cause serious damage to the bark.
Trees usually thrive well in existing moisture conditions and don’t require any extra watering. However, depending on your regional climate, you might have to water your trees throughout extended periods of dry spell. If you do need to water trees in the summertime, an occasional deep watering is preferred to a frequent misting. In winter season trees should not require 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 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: eliminate the smaller sized branch so the stronger one can grow without being harmed.
- Broken and dead branches: a tidy cut will assist the tree heal.
Low branches: get rid of branches that are low and are vulnerable to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also eliminate low branches for visual purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two ways you can make sure 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 have to touch the trunk.
- Plant turf or some type of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Make sure your plants can flourish in the shade and that their roots do not compete with the tree.
