Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be considered granted however intense weather can take its toll. It is very important to keep trees healthy and attempt to avoid illness or weather condition damage.
One of the first things you can do is find out about the trees you want to look after and their particular needs. If you’re not sure about the sort of tree you have, there are lots of resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When investigating trees, the main things to keep an eye out for are:
- Kind of soil needed
- Quantity of water needed
- Specific level of sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
When you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 tips to keep your trees resistant and healthy.
Safeguard the roots.
Concentrate on the zone around a tree approximately where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone but this is the area where roots are more sensitive. The key is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep absorbing water and oxygen.
Safeguard the bark.
Think about the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Protecting the tree bark will prevent infections, diseases or insect activity. Keep an eye out for possible risks that could damage tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Remove lower branches to avoid breakage and make sure trees are visible at night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again hits bark at the exact same location can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, ensure these do not directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches don’t get braided.
- Yard equipment: put on; t get yard equipment close to the tree trunks as this can cause severe damage to the bark.
Trees usually flourish well in existing wetness conditions and don’t require any extra watering. Nevertheless, depending upon your regional environment, you might need to water your trees throughout extended durations of dry spell. If you do need to water trees in the summer, an occasional deep watering is preferred to a regular misting. In winter season trees shouldn’t need any watering.
We’ve previously blogged about pruning trees as it’s a vital part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you know 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 more powerful one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will assist the tree recover.
Low branches: remove branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can also eliminate low branches for aesthetic functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two 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 yard or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Make sure your plants can prosper in the shade and that their roots don’t compete with the tree.
