Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be taken for approved but intense weather can take its toll. It’s important to keep trees healthy and attempt to avoid illness or weather condition damage.
Among the first things you can do is find out about the trees you want to look after and their particular requirements. If you’re not sure about the kind of tree you have, there are numerous resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When looking into trees, the main things to watch out for are:
- Type of soil required
- Quantity of water needed
- Specific sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
As soon as you know more about your trees, follow these 5 tips to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Protect the roots.
Focus on the zone around a tree as much as where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone but this is the location where roots are more sensitive. The key is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep soaking up water and oxygen.
Safeguard the bark.
Think of the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will prevent infections, diseases or insect activity. Keep an eye out for prospective threats that might harm tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to prevent damage and make sure trees show up in the evening.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again hits bark at the same place can cause damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your yard, ensure these don’t straight hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches don’t get laced.
- Yard equipment: put on; t get lawn devices near to the tree trunks as this can cause severe damage to the bark.
Trees typically grow well in existing wetness conditions and don’t need any extra watering. However, depending on your local climate, you may need to water your trees during extended periods of dry spell. If you do have to water trees in the summer, a periodic 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 an important part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand what you are doing, otherwise you can always employ a professional. The main things to look out for are:.
- Crossing branches: remove the smaller 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 effect). You can also eliminate low branches for visual purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 methods you can ensure that the soil around your tree is abundant in nutrients.
- Usage 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 turf or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and enrich the soil. Make certain your plants can prosper in the shade and that their roots do not compete with the tree.
