Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be considered given however extreme weather condition can take its toll. It is essential to keep trees healthy and try to prevent illness or weather damage.
One of the very first things you can do is learn more about the trees you wish to look after and their specific needs. If you’re uncertain about the kind 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 things to keep an eye out for are:
- Kind of soil needed
- Amount of water needed
- Particular level of sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
As soon as you know more about your trees, follow these 5 suggestions 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 area where roots are more delicate. The key is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep absorbing water and oxygen.
Secure the bark.
Consider the bark as an armour that protects the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will prevent infections, illness or insect activity. Look out for possible threats that might harm 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 in the evening.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that repetitively hits bark at the same location can cause damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your lawn, make sure these do not directly strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches don’t get laced.
- Yard equipment: put on; t get yard devices close to the tree trunks as this can cause major damage to the bark.
Trees typically grow well in existing moisture conditions and don’t require any additional watering. Nevertheless, depending on your local environment, you may have to water your trees during extended durations of drought. If you do need to water trees in the summertime, a periodic deep watering is preferred to a regular misting. In winter trees should not need any watering.
We’ve previously written about pruning trees as it’s an important part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly work with an expert. The main things to watch out for are:.
- Crossing branches: eliminate the smaller sized branch so the stronger one can grow without being harmed.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will help the tree recover.
Low branches: get rid of branches that are low and are susceptible to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can likewise remove low branches for aesthetic functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two methods you can make certain 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 have to touch the trunk.
- Plant yard or some type of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and enrich the soil. Ensure your plants can thrive in the shade and that their roots do not compete with the tree.
