Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be taken for given but intense weather can take its toll. It is necessary to keep trees healthy and attempt to prevent diseases or weather condition damage.
One of the very first things you can do is learn more about the trees you want to look after and their particular requirements. If you’re not exactly sure about the kind 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 look out for are:
- Kind of soil required
- Amount of water required
- Particular level of sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
As soon as you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 tips to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Protect the roots.
Focus on the zone around a tree up to where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone but this is the area where roots are more delicate. The key is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep soaking up water and oxygen.
Safeguard the bark.
Think about the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Securing the tree bark will prevent infections, diseases or insect activity. Keep an eye out for prospective dangers that might harm tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to avoid damage and make certain trees show up at night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again strikes bark at the exact same place can trigger damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your lawn, ensure these don’t directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches do not get braided.
- Lawn devices: wear; t get lawn devices near the tree trunks as this can trigger serious damage to the bark.
Trees usually flourish well in existing wetness conditions and do not require any additional watering. However, depending upon your local climate, you might need to water your trees during extended periods of drought. If you do need 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 a crucial part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can always hire an expert. The main things to keep an eye out for are:.
- Crossing branches: eliminate the smaller branch so the stronger one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will help the tree recover.
Low branches: remove branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also remove low branches for visual purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 ways you can make certain that the soil around your tree is abundant in nutrients.
- Use mulch. Spread out a layer of mulch around your tree, about 2 to 4 inches thick. The mulch does not need to touch the trunk.
- Plant yard or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Ensure your plants can flourish in the shade and that their roots do not take on the tree.
Nearby Areas That We Cover:
Kilberry (Scottish Gaelic: Cill Bheiridh) is a village in Argyll and Bute, Scotland. It is close to the western coast of the district of Knapdale.
Kilberry Castle, just to the west of the village, was built in 1497 as a L-plan castle by a cadet branch of Clan Campbell. The castle was destroyed by an English pirate in 1513. The ruins were incorporated into the present mansion, built in 1844 by John Campbell and enlarged in 1871.
A group of sculptured stones, in the care of Historic Environment Scotland, are on display in a purpose-built shelter in the grounds of the castle. The stones, which include cross-slabs and medieval grave markers, originally came from the medieval parish church, which was destroyed in the 17th century.
