Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be considered approved however extreme weather condition can take its toll. It is essential to keep trees healthy and attempt to prevent illness or weather condition damage.
One of the very first things you can do is learn more about the trees you want to look after 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 investigating trees, the main points to look out for are:
- Kind of soil required
- Amount of water required
- Specific level of sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
As soon as you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 suggestions to keep your trees resistant and healthy.
Safeguard the roots.
Focus 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 taking in water and oxygen.
Secure the bark.
Consider the bark as an armour that safeguards the tree. Securing the tree bark will prevent infections, illness or insect activity. Watch out for possible dangers that might damage tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Remove lower branches to avoid damage and make sure 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 utilize sprinklers to water your yard, ensure these do not directly strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches don’t get entwined.
- Yard devices: put on; t get lawn devices near the tree trunks as this can cause major damage to the bark.
Trees typically thrive well in existing moisture conditions and do not need any additional watering. However, depending upon your regional environment, you may need to water your trees throughout extended durations of drought. If you do have to water trees in the summertime, a periodic deep watering is preferred to a frequent misting. In winter trees shouldn’t require any watering.
We’ve formerly discussed pruning trees as it’s an essential part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly work with an expert. The main points 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 help the tree heal.
Low branches: remove branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can also get rid of low branches for aesthetic purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 ways you can make sure that the soil around your tree is rich 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 turf or some type of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and enhance the soil. Ensure your plants can flourish in the shade and that their roots do not compete with the tree.

The once-famous Poulaphouca Waterfall has little water running over it any longer because of the hydroelectric project.
