Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be taken for granted but intense weather condition can take its toll. It’s important to keep trees healthy and aim to prevent illness or weather condition damage.
One of the very first things you can do is learn about the trees you wish to take care of and their specific needs. If you’re unsure about the kind of tree you have, there are numerous resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When researching trees, the main points to look out for are:
- Type of soil needed
- Quantity of water needed
- Specific level of sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
As soon as you know more about your trees, follow these 5 ideas to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Secure the roots.
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 taking in water and oxygen.
Protect the bark.
Consider the bark as an armour that protects the tree. Protecting the tree bark will avoid infections, diseases or insect activity. Look out for possible dangers that could harm tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to prevent damage and make certain trees show up during the night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again strikes bark at the very same place can cause damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, ensure these do not directly strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches do not get laced.
- Yard equipment: don; t get lawn equipment close to the tree trunks as this can trigger major damage to the bark.
Trees generally grow well in existing wetness conditions and don’t require any additional watering. However, depending upon your regional climate, you may need to water your trees throughout extended durations of drought. If you do have to water trees in the summer season, an occasional deep watering is preferred to a regular misting. In winter trees shouldn’t need 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 hire a professional. The main points to watch out for are:.
- Crossing branches: remove the smaller branch so the stronger one can grow without being harmed.
- Broken and dead branches: a tidy cut will help the tree heal.
Low branches: remove branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also remove low branches for aesthetic functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 ways you can make sure 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 need to touch the trunk.
- Plant yard or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and enhance the soil. Ensure your plants can grow in the shade and that their roots don’t compete with the tree.
