Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can frequently be considered granted however intense weather can take its toll. It’s important to keep trees healthy and attempt to avoid illness or weather damage.
Among the very first things you can do is discover the trees you want to care for and their particular needs. If you’re not exactly sure about the type of tree you have, there are many 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:
- Type of soil required
- Quantity of water required
- Specific sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
When you know more about your trees, follow these 5 suggestions to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Safeguard the roots.
Concentrate on the zone around a tree as much as where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone however this is the area where roots are more sensitive. The secret is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep absorbing water and oxygen.
Secure the bark.
Consider the bark as an armour that safeguards the tree. Securing the tree bark will prevent infections, illness or insect activity. Watch out for prospective risks that might damage tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to prevent breakage and ensure trees show up during the night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again hits bark at the exact same place can cause damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your yard, make sure these do not straight strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches do not get braided.
- Lawn devices: don; t get lawn equipment near the tree trunks as this can trigger major damage to the bark.
Trees generally flourish well in existing wetness conditions and don’t need any extra watering. Nevertheless, depending on your local environment, you may need to water your trees during extended durations of drought. If you do have to water trees in the summer season, an occasional deep watering is chosen to a regular misting. In winter season trees shouldn’t require any watering.
We’ve previously blogged about pruning trees as it’s an essential part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can always work with an expert. The main points to look out for are:.
- Crossing branches: get rid of the smaller sized branch so the stronger one can grow without being harmed.
- Broken and dead branches: a tidy cut will assist the tree recover.
Low branches: eliminate branches that are low and are susceptible to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can also eliminate low branches for aesthetic functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 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 grass or some type of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and enrich the soil. Make sure your plants can flourish in the shade and that their roots don’t compete with the tree.
