Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can frequently be taken for granted however intense weather condition can take its toll. It is necessary to keep trees healthy and attempt to avoid diseases or weather condition damage.
One of the first things you can do is learn about the trees you wish 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 researching trees, the main things to watch out for are:
- Kind 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 pointers to keep your trees resistant and healthy.
Protect 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 area where roots are more delicate. The key 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 secures the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will prevent infections, diseases or insect activity. Watch out for prospective dangers that might damage tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to prevent breakage and ensure trees show up in the evening.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again hits bark at the exact same location can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, make sure these do not directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches do not get entwined.
- Yard equipment: wear; t get lawn devices near the tree trunks as this can trigger serious damage to the bark.
Trees typically flourish well in existing moisture conditions and do not require any extra watering. However, depending upon your local environment, you might have to water your trees during extended durations of drought. If you do need to water trees in the summertime, a periodic deep watering is chosen to a frequent misting. In winter season trees should not require any watering.
We’ve previously written about pruning trees as it’s a crucial part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can always employ a professional. The main things to watch out for are:.
- Crossing branches: eliminate the smaller sized branch so the more powerful one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a tidy cut will help the tree heal.
Low branches: remove branches that are low and are vulnerable to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also remove low branches for aesthetic functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two methods you can make certain that the soil around your tree is abundant 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 grass or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and enrich the soil. Ensure your plants can prosper in the shade and that their roots don’t compete with the tree.
