Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be taken for approved but extreme weather can take its toll. It is essential to keep trees healthy and try to avoid illness or weather damage.
One of the very first things you can do is discover the trees you wish to care for and their particular requirements. If you’re not sure about the type of tree you have, there are lots of resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When investigating trees, the main things to watch out for are:
- Type of soil required
- Amount of water needed
- Specific level of sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
As soon as you know more about your trees, follow these 5 ideas to keep your trees resistant and healthy.
Safeguard the roots.
Concentrate 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 delicate. 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 secures the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will avoid infections, diseases or insect activity. Look out for prospective dangers that might damage tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to avoid breakage and make sure trees show up at night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that repetitively hits bark at the exact same place can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, make certain these don’t directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches don’t get entwined.
- Lawn equipment: put on; t get yard equipment near to the tree trunks as this can cause severe damage to the bark.
Trees usually thrive well in existing moisture conditions and do not need any extra watering. However, depending upon your regional climate, you may have to water your trees throughout extended durations of drought. If you do have to water trees in the summer, an occasional deep watering is preferred to a frequent misting. In winter season trees shouldn’t require any watering.
We’ve formerly discussed pruning trees as it’s a vital part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you know exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly work with a professional. The main things to look out for are:.
- Crossing branches: eliminate the smaller branch so the more powerful one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will assist the tree heal.
Low branches: get rid of branches that are low and are susceptible to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also remove low branches for aesthetic purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 ways 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 material will decay in the ground and enhance the soil. Make sure your plants can flourish in the shade and that their roots do not compete with the tree.
