Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be taken for given however extreme weather condition can take its toll. It’s important to keep trees healthy and try to prevent diseases or weather condition damage.
Among the very first things you can do is learn more about the trees you want to take care of and their specific needs. If you’re uncertain about the type of tree you have, there are many resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When looking into trees, the main points to look out for are:
- Kind of soil required
- Quantity of water needed
- Specific sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
When you know more about your trees, follow these 5 suggestions to keep your trees durable and healthy.
Protect the roots.
Focus on the zone around a tree up to where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone but this is the area where roots are more sensitive. 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 protects the tree. Securing the tree bark will prevent infections, illness or insect activity. Keep an eye out for prospective dangers that could damage tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Remove lower branches to prevent damage and make sure trees show up during the night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again strikes bark at the same location can trigger damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your lawn, make sure these do not directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches don’t get laced.
- Lawn devices: don; t get yard equipment near the tree trunks as this can trigger severe damage to the bark.
Trees usually thrive well in existing moisture conditions and do not require any extra watering. However, depending on your regional climate, you may have to water your trees during extended periods of drought. If you do need to water trees in the summer season, a periodic deep watering is chosen to a frequent misting. In winter trees shouldn’t require any watering.
We’ve previously blogged about pruning trees as it’s a crucial part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly work with a professional. The main things to look out for are:.
- Crossing branches: remove 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: eliminate branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can also eliminate low branches for visual functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two ways you can make certain 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 grass or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Ensure your plants can flourish in the shade and that their roots do not compete with the tree.
