Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be taken for approved however intense weather can take its toll. It is essential to keep trees healthy and attempt to prevent diseases or weather damage.
Among the very first things you can do is find out about the trees you wish to care for and their specific requirements. If you’re not sure about the kind 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 watch out for are:
- Kind of soil needed
- Amount of water required
- Particular sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
When you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 suggestions to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Protect the roots.
Concentrate 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 taking in water and oxygen.
Protect the bark.
Consider the bark as an armour that safeguards the tree. Securing the tree bark will avoid infections, illness or insect activity. Keep an eye out for possible risks that might damage tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to prevent breakage and make certain trees show up in the evening.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that over and over again hits bark at the very same location can trigger damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your lawn, ensure these do not directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches don’t get entwined.
- Yard devices: don; t get yard devices near the tree trunks as this can trigger severe damage to the bark.
Trees typically thrive well in existing wetness conditions and do not require any extra watering. However, depending on your regional environment, you might need to water your trees throughout extended periods of drought. If you do need to water trees in the summertime, an occasional deep watering is preferred to a regular misting. In winter trees should not need any watering.
We’ve previously blogged about pruning trees as it’s a crucial part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you know what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly employ 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 harmed.
- 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 eliminate low branches for visual purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 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 lawn or some type of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Make certain your plants can prosper in the shade and that their roots do not take on the tree.
