Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can frequently be considered approved however intense weather can take its toll. It’s important to keep trees healthy and aim to avoid diseases or weather damage.
One of the first things you can do is learn more about the trees you wish to look after and their specific requirements. If you’re not sure about the sort of tree you have, there are numerous resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When investigating trees, the main points to keep an eye out for are:
- Kind of soil needed
- Amount of water required
- Specific sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
Once you understand 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 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 avoid infections, diseases or insect activity. Keep an eye out for prospective threats that could damage tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to prevent breakage and make sure trees are visible at night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that repetitively strikes bark at the very same place can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your yard, make certain these don’t directly strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches do not get laced.
- Lawn devices: put on; t get yard equipment near to the tree trunks as this can cause major damage to the bark.
Trees typically grow well in existing wetness conditions and do not need any additional watering. Nevertheless, depending upon your local climate, you might need to water your trees throughout extended durations of dry spell. If you do have to water trees in the summer season, an occasional deep watering is preferred to a frequent misting. In winter season trees should not require any watering.
We’ve previously written about pruning trees as it’s an essential part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you know what you are doing, otherwise you can always work with a professional. The main points to watch out for are:.
- Crossing branches: remove 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: remove branches that are low and are vulnerable to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also eliminate low branches for aesthetic functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 ways you can ensure 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 need to touch the trunk.
- Plant lawn or some type of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and enrich the soil. Make certain your plants can flourish in the shade and that their roots do not compete with the tree.
