Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be taken for given however intense weather can take its toll. It is very important to keep trees healthy and attempt to avoid illness or weather condition damage.
Among the very first things you can do is learn more about the trees you want to look after and their particular needs. If you’re unsure about the kind of tree you have, there are many resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When investigating trees, the main points to look out for are:
- Type of soil needed
- Amount of water required
- Particular level of sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
When you know 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 up to where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone however 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 absorbing water and oxygen.
Secure the bark.
Think of the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Protecting the tree bark will avoid infections, diseases or insect activity. Look out for potential threats that might damage tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to avoid damage and make sure trees are visible at night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that over and over again strikes bark at the very same place can trigger damage. If you utilize 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 correctly so branches do not get entwined.
- Yard equipment: wear; t get lawn equipment close to the tree trunks as this can trigger severe damage to the bark.
Trees normally prosper well in existing moisture conditions and do not require any extra watering. However, depending upon your regional climate, you may need to water your trees throughout extended periods of drought. If you do need to water trees in the summertime, an occasional deep watering is chosen to a regular misting. In winter season trees should not require any watering.
We’ve formerly written about pruning trees as it’s a vital part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you know what you are doing, otherwise you can always work with an expert. The main points to keep an eye 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 heal.
Low branches: eliminate branches that are low and are susceptible to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also eliminate 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 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 do not compete with the tree.
