Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can frequently be taken for given however extreme weather condition can take its toll. It’s important to keep trees healthy and attempt to prevent diseases or weather condition damage.
One of the very first things you can do is learn about the trees you want to care for and their particular needs. If you’re not sure about the kind of tree you have, there are numerous resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When looking into trees, the main things to keep an eye out for are:
- Type of soil required
- Amount of water needed
- Specific level of sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
When you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 tips to keep your trees resistant and healthy.
Secure 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 taking in water and oxygen.
Safeguard the bark.
Think of the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Securing the tree bark will avoid infections, illness or insect activity. Watch out for prospective risks that might damage tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to avoid breakage and make sure trees show up in the evening.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that repetitively strikes bark at the very same place can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, 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.
- Lawn devices: wear; t get yard devices near to the tree trunks as this can cause severe damage to the bark.
Trees generally thrive well in existing wetness conditions and do not need any additional watering. However, depending on your local climate, you may have to water your trees throughout 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 season trees shouldn’t need any watering.
We’ve previously written about pruning trees as it’s a crucial part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you know exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can always work with an expert. The main points to keep an eye 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: eliminate branches that are low and are susceptible to damage (i.e. by an impact). 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 rich 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 yard or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and enhance the soil. Ensure your plants can grow in the shade and that their roots do not compete with the tree.
