Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can frequently be considered granted however intense weather can take its toll. It is essential to keep trees healthy and aim to prevent diseases 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 type of tree you have, there are lots of resources online to help 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
- Amount of water needed
- Specific level of sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
When you know more about your trees, follow these 5 ideas to keep your trees durable and healthy.
Safeguard the roots.
Focus on the zone around a tree approximately 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 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, illness or insect activity. Look out for possible dangers that might damage tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Remove lower branches to prevent damage and ensure trees are visible during the night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that repetitively strikes bark at the exact same location can cause damage. If you use sprinklers to water your yard, make sure these do not straight hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches do not get entwined.
- Yard devices: put on; t get lawn equipment near to the tree trunks as this can trigger major damage to the bark.
Trees usually prosper well in existing wetness conditions and don’t require any extra watering. However, depending upon your regional environment, you may have to water your trees during extended durations of drought. If you do need to water trees in the summer, a periodic deep watering is chosen to a frequent misting. In winter season trees should not require any watering.
We’ve formerly written about pruning trees as it’s an essential part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly hire an expert. The main points to look out for are:.
- Crossing branches: remove the smaller sized branch so the more powerful one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will help the tree heal.
Low branches: remove branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can also get rid of low branches for aesthetic functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two ways you can make sure 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 need to touch the trunk.
- Plant grass or some type of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and enrich the soil. Make sure your plants can grow in the shade and that their roots don’t compete with the tree.
