Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be considered granted but intense weather can take its toll. It is essential to keep trees healthy and aim to prevent illness or weather condition damage.
Among the very first things you can do is learn more about the trees you want to care for and their particular 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 investigating trees, the main things to look out for are:
- Kind of soil required
- Amount of water needed
- Particular sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
As soon as you know more about your trees, follow these 5 ideas to keep your trees resistant 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 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.
Secure the bark.
Think of the bark as an armour that safeguards the tree. Protecting the tree bark will prevent infections, illness or insect activity. Keep an eye out for possible dangers that could harm tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Remove lower branches to avoid damage and ensure trees are visible during the night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that over and over again strikes bark at the same place can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your yard, ensure these do not straight strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches do not get entwined.
- Lawn equipment: don; t get lawn equipment close to the tree trunks as this can trigger severe damage to the bark.
Trees generally flourish well in existing wetness conditions and do not need any additional watering. However, depending upon your regional environment, you might have to water your trees throughout extended periods of dry spell. If you do have to water trees in the summer, a periodic 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 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 hire a professional. The main things to watch out for are:.
- Crossing branches: get rid of the smaller sized branch so the stronger one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will help the tree recover.
Low branches: get rid of branches that are low and are susceptible to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also get rid of low branches for visual functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 methods you can make sure that the soil around your tree is rich in nutrients.
- Use mulch. Spread out a layer of mulch around your tree, about 2 to 4 inches thick. The mulch does not have to touch the trunk.
- Plant grass or some type of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and enhance the soil. Make certain your plants can thrive in the shade and that their roots don’t compete with the tree.
