Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be taken for given but extreme weather condition can take its toll. It is very important to keep trees healthy and try to prevent diseases or weather damage.
Among the very first things you can do is learn more about the trees you want to take care of and their specific requirements. If you’re unsure about the type of tree you have, there are numerous resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When looking into trees, the main points to keep an eye out for are:
- Kind of soil needed
- Quantity of water required
- Particular sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
Once you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 ideas to keep your trees durable and healthy.
Secure 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 key is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep taking in water and oxygen.
Secure the bark.
Think of the bark as an armour that protects the tree. Protecting the tree bark will avoid infections, illness or insect activity. Watch out for possible risks that could damage tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to prevent breakage and make certain trees show up at night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again hits bark at the same location can trigger damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your yard, make sure these don’t directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches do not get entwined.
- Yard devices: put on; t get lawn devices near to the tree trunks as this can cause severe damage to the bark.
Trees normally thrive well in existing wetness conditions and do not require any additional watering. However, depending on your regional environment, you may have to water your trees during extended durations of dry spell. If you do have to water trees in the summertime, a periodic deep watering is preferred to a regular misting. In winter trees shouldn’t need any watering.
We’ve formerly discussed pruning trees as it’s a crucial part of tree upkeep. 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: get rid of the smaller sized 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: remove branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also get rid of low branches for aesthetic 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 enrich the soil. Make sure your plants can prosper in the shade and that their roots don’t compete with the tree.
