Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be considered granted however extreme weather condition can take its toll. It is essential to keep trees healthy and try to avoid illness or weather damage.
One of the first things you can do is learn about the trees you want to look after and their specific requirements. 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 investigating trees, the main things to look out for are:
- Type of soil required
- Amount of water needed
- Particular sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
Once you know more about your trees, follow these 5 ideas to keep your trees resistant and healthy.
Protect 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 delicate. 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.
Think of the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Protecting the tree bark will prevent infections, illness or insect activity. Keep an eye out for possible risks that might damage tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to prevent damage and make certain trees are visible in the evening.
- Sprinkler system: 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 hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches don’t get laced.
- Lawn equipment: put on; t get yard devices near to the tree trunks as this can trigger serious damage to the bark.
Trees typically grow well in existing moisture conditions and do not require any extra watering. However, depending upon your local climate, you may need to water your trees throughout extended durations of drought. If you do have to water trees in the summertime, an occasional deep watering is preferred to a regular misting. In winter trees shouldn’t need any watering.
We’ve previously blogged about pruning trees as it’s a crucial part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly employ an expert. The main points to keep an eye 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 assist the tree heal.
Low branches: eliminate branches that are low and are vulnerable to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also get rid of low branches for aesthetic functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two methods you can make certain that the soil around your tree is rich in nutrients.
- Use mulch. Spread 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 material will decay in the ground and enrich the soil. Make sure your plants can thrive in the shade and that their roots do not take on the tree.
