Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be taken for granted however extreme weather can take its toll. It is very important to keep trees healthy and attempt to prevent diseases or weather damage.
One of the very first things you can do is find out about the trees you want to look after and their specific requirements. If you’re not exactly sure about the type of tree you have, there are lots of resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When researching trees, the main things to look out for are:
- Type of soil needed
- Quantity of water needed
- Particular sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
As soon as you know more about your trees, follow these 5 suggestions to keep your trees durable and healthy.
Secure 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 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.
Think of the bark as an armour that safeguards the tree. Securing the tree bark will prevent infections, illness or insect activity. Keep an eye out for potential dangers that could harm tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to avoid damage and make certain trees show up during the night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that over and over again hits bark at the exact same place can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, ensure these don’t straight strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches do not get laced.
- Lawn devices: don; t get yard equipment near the tree trunks as this can trigger serious damage to the bark.
Trees usually thrive well in existing moisture conditions and do not need any additional watering. However, depending upon your regional climate, you might need to water your trees throughout extended periods of dry spell. If you do need to water trees in the summertime, an occasional deep watering is chosen to a frequent misting. In winter trees shouldn’t need any watering.
We’ve previously written about pruning trees as it’s a vital part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand what you are doing, otherwise you can always hire a professional. 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 clean cut will help the tree heal.
Low branches: remove branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can likewise 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.
- Usage mulch. Spread a layer of mulch around your tree, about 2 to 4 inches thick. The mulch does not have to touch the trunk.
- Plant yard or some kind 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 compete with the tree.
