Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be taken for given but extreme weather can take its toll. It is essential to keep trees healthy and try to avoid illness or weather damage.
Among the very first things you can do is learn about the trees you want to care for and their specific requirements. If you’re not exactly sure about the sort of tree you have, there are numerous resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When looking into trees, the main things to watch out for are:
- Type of soil required
- Quantity of water required
- Particular sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
As soon as you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 suggestions to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Safeguard the roots.
Concentrate 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 protects the tree. Protecting the tree bark will avoid infections, illness or insect activity. Look out for prospective risks that could harm tree bark, consisting of:.
- 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 in the evening.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that repetitively hits bark at the very same place can cause damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, make sure these do not straight strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches do not get braided.
- Lawn devices: put on; t get lawn devices near the tree trunks as this can trigger serious damage to the bark.
Trees usually thrive well in existing wetness conditions and don’t need any extra watering. Nevertheless, depending on your local environment, you may have to water your trees throughout extended periods of drought. If you do need to water trees in the summer season, an occasional deep watering is preferred to a regular misting. In winter season trees shouldn’t require any watering.
We’ve previously discussed pruning trees as it’s a vital part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you know what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly employ an expert. The main things to keep an eye out for are:.
- Crossing branches: get rid of the smaller branch so the more powerful one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will help the tree recover.
Low branches: get rid of branches that are low and are vulnerable to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can likewise eliminate low branches for aesthetic purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 ways you can ensure that the soil around your tree is rich in nutrients.
- Usage 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 enrich the soil. Make certain your plants can flourish in the shade and that their roots don’t compete with the tree.
