Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be taken for granted but extreme weather can take its toll. It is essential to keep trees healthy and aim to avoid illness or weather damage.
Among the very first things you can do is learn more about the trees you want to look after and their particular needs. If you’re uncertain about the kind 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:
- Kind of soil required
- Amount of water required
- Particular level of sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
Once you know more about your trees, follow these 5 ideas to keep your trees resilient 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 sensitive. 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.
Think about the bark as an armour that safeguards the tree. Protecting the tree bark will prevent infections, illness or insect activity. Keep an eye out for possible threats that could damage tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to avoid damage and ensure trees are visible in the evening.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that repetitively hits bark at the very same location can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, make certain these do not straight hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches do not get braided.
- Lawn devices: put on; t get yard devices near to the tree trunks as this can trigger serious damage to the bark.
Trees typically thrive well in existing moisture conditions and don’t need any additional watering. However, depending upon your regional climate, you may have to water your trees during extended periods of dry spell. If you do have to water trees in the summer, a periodic deep watering is chosen to a frequent misting. In winter season trees should not require any watering.
We’ve previously blogged about 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 employ an expert. The main things to watch 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 assist the tree recover.
Low branches: get rid of branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can also remove low branches for visual functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two methods you can ensure 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 lawn or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant product 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.
