Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be taken for granted but intense weather condition can take its toll. It’s important to keep trees healthy and aim to avoid illness or weather condition damage.
One of the very first things you can do is find out about the trees you wish to take care of and their particular requirements. If you’re unsure 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 looking into trees, the main things to look out for are:
- Kind of soil needed
- Amount of water needed
- Particular level of sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
When you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 suggestions to keep your trees durable and healthy.
Protect 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 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 protects the tree. Protecting the tree bark will prevent infections, diseases or insect activity. Look out for possible dangers that might 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 sure trees are visible during the night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again hits bark at the same place can trigger damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your lawn, make sure these don’t directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches do not get laced.
- Lawn equipment: don; t get yard equipment near to the tree trunks as this can cause severe damage to the bark.
Trees typically prosper well in existing wetness conditions and don’t need any extra watering. However, depending upon your regional climate, 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 frequent misting. In winter 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 understand what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly work with an expert. The main points to keep an eye out for are:.
- Crossing branches: remove the smaller branch so the stronger 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 impact). You can also get rid of low branches for visual functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 methods you can make sure that the soil around your tree is rich 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 turf 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 do not compete with the tree.
