Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be taken for given but intense weather can take its toll. It is very important to keep trees healthy and attempt to prevent diseases or weather damage.
Among the first things you can do is learn about the trees you want to look after and their particular needs. If you’re not sure 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 keep an eye out for are:
- Type of soil needed
- Quantity of water needed
- Specific level of sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
Once you know more about your trees, follow these 5 tips to keep your trees durable and healthy.
Safeguard 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 secret is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep absorbing water and oxygen.
Protect the bark.
Think about the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Securing the tree bark will avoid infections, illness or insect activity. Look out for prospective risks that might harm tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to prevent breakage and make certain trees are visible in the evening.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that repetitively strikes bark at the same location can cause damage. If you use sprinklers to water your yard, make sure these don’t straight hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches do not get braided.
- Lawn devices: put on; t get lawn equipment close to the tree trunks as this can trigger major damage to the bark.
Trees generally flourish well in existing moisture conditions and do not need any extra watering. However, depending upon your local climate, you may have to water your trees during extended periods of drought. If you do need to water trees in the summer season, an occasional deep watering is preferred to a frequent misting. In winter season trees shouldn’t require any watering.
We’ve previously blogged about pruning trees as it’s a crucial part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly hire a professional. The main things to watch out for are:.
- Crossing branches: remove the smaller branch so the more powerful one can grow without being harmed.
- Broken and dead branches: a tidy cut will help the tree heal.
Low branches: eliminate branches that are low and are susceptible to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can also get rid of low branches for aesthetic functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 methods you can make sure 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 turf or some type 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 don’t take on the tree.
