Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be taken for given however intense weather can take its toll. It is necessary to keep trees healthy and attempt to prevent illness or weather condition damage.
One of the very first things you can do is discover the trees you wish to look after and their specific requirements. If you’re not exactly sure about the kind of tree you have, there are many resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When researching trees, the main points to watch out for are:
- Type of soil needed
- Quantity of water required
- Specific level of sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
When you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 ideas to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Secure 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 location where roots are more sensitive. The key 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. Securing the tree bark will avoid infections, diseases or insect activity. Look out for possible risks that could damage tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to avoid damage and make certain trees show up in the evening.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that repetitively hits bark at the very same location can cause damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your yard, ensure these don’t directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches do not get entwined.
- Yard equipment: put on; t get yard equipment near the tree trunks as this can cause serious damage to the bark.
Trees generally grow well in existing moisture conditions and don’t require any extra watering. Nevertheless, depending on your local environment, you may need to water your trees throughout extended periods of drought. If you do have to water trees in the summer, an occasional deep watering is preferred to a regular misting. In winter trees should not require any watering.
We’ve previously written about 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 hire an expert. The main points to keep an eye out for are:.
- Crossing branches: remove the smaller sized branch so the stronger one can grow without being harmed.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will assist the tree heal.
Low branches: eliminate branches that are low and are susceptible to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also get rid of low branches for visual functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two methods you can make sure that the soil around your tree is abundant in nutrients.
- Usage mulch. Spread 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 type of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and enhance the soil. Make sure your plants can flourish in the shade and that their roots do not take on the tree.
