Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can frequently be considered granted however extreme weather condition can take its toll. It is essential 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 look after and their particular needs. If you’re not exactly sure about the sort of tree you have, there are numerous resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When researching trees, the main things to watch out for are:
- Type of soil needed
- Amount of water required
- Particular sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
Once you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 tips to keep your trees resistant and healthy.
Secure the roots.
Focus on the zone around a tree approximately where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone however this is the location 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.
Protect the bark.
Think of the bark as an armour that protects the tree. Protecting the tree bark will avoid infections, illness or insect activity. Look out for potential threats that might harm tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to avoid damage and make certain trees show up during the night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that repetitively hits bark at the same place can cause damage. If you use sprinklers to water your yard, ensure these do not directly strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches do not get entwined.
- Yard equipment: put on; t get yard devices near the tree trunks as this can cause serious damage to the bark.
Trees usually flourish well in existing wetness conditions and do not need any extra watering. However, depending on your local environment, you may have to water your trees throughout 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 season trees should not need any watering.
We’ve previously written about pruning trees as it’s a vital part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you know what you are doing, otherwise you can always employ an expert. The main things to watch out for are:.
- Crossing branches: eliminate the smaller branch so the more powerful one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a tidy cut will assist the tree heal.
Low branches: remove branches that are low and are susceptible to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can also get rid of low branches for visual functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two ways 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 need to touch the trunk.
- Plant lawn or some type of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Ensure your plants can flourish in the shade and that their roots don’t take on the tree.
