Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be taken for approved however intense weather can take its toll. It’s important to keep trees healthy and aim to prevent illness or weather condition damage.
One of the first things you can do is find out about the trees you wish to take care of and their particular requirements. If you’re uncertain about the type of tree you have, there are many resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail.

Concentrate on the zone around a tree up to where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone but this is the location where roots are more sensitive. The secret is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep soaking up water and oxygen.
Protect the bark.
Think of the bark as an armour that safeguards the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will avoid infections, illness or insect activity. Look out for potential dangers that might damage tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Remove lower branches to prevent breakage and ensure trees are visible at night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again hits bark at the exact same place can cause damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, make sure these do not straight hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches do not get braided.

Trees usually thrive well in existing moisture conditions and do not require any extra watering. Nevertheless, depending upon your local climate, you might have to water your trees during extended periods of drought. If you do need to water trees in the summer season, a periodic deep watering is preferred to a regular misting. In winter trees shouldn’t need any watering.
We’ve previously discussed pruning trees as it’s an essential part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand what you are doing, otherwise you can always work with a professional. The main points 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 assist the tree recover.
Low branches: get rid of branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can likewise remove low branches for visual purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two 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 grass or some type of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Make sure your plants can flourish in the shade and that their roots don’t compete with the tree.
