Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be taken for approved however intense weather condition can take its toll. It is essential to keep trees healthy and try to prevent diseases or weather damage.
One of the first things you can do is learn more about the trees you want to take care of and their specific needs. If you’re unsure about the type of tree you have, there are many resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When investigating trees, the main points to keep an eye out for are:
- Kind of soil needed
- Amount of water required
- Particular level of sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
Once you know more about your trees, follow these 5 suggestions to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Safeguard the roots.
Focus on the zone around a tree as much as where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone but this is the location 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.
Secure the bark.
Consider the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Protecting the tree bark will avoid infections, illness or insect activity. Watch out for possible threats that might damage tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Remove lower branches to avoid breakage and make sure trees show up at night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that over and over again hits bark at the very same place can trigger damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your lawn, make sure these don’t directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches do not get laced.
- Lawn devices: don; t get yard equipment near to the tree trunks as this can cause severe damage to the bark.
Trees normally thrive well in existing moisture conditions and do not need any additional watering. However, depending on your local climate, you may need to water your trees throughout extended durations of dry spell. If you do have to water trees in the summertime, a periodic deep watering is chosen to a frequent misting. In winter season trees should not need any watering.
We’ve previously discussed pruning trees as it’s an essential 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 a professional. The main things to look out for are:.
- Crossing branches: remove the smaller 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: get rid of branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can also get rid of low branches for visual purposes.
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 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. Make sure your plants can flourish in the shade and that their roots don’t take on the tree.
