Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can frequently be considered granted but extreme weather condition can take its toll. It’s important to keep trees healthy and attempt to prevent illness or weather damage.
One of the very first things you can do is learn more about the trees you wish to care for and their particular needs. If you’re uncertain about the type 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 things to keep an eye out for are:
- Type of soil needed
- Quantity of water needed
- Particular level of sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
Once you know more about your trees, follow these 5 tips to keep your trees resistant and healthy.
Protect the roots.
Focus on the zone around a tree approximately where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone but this is the area where roots are more sensitive. 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.
Think about the bark as an armour that protects the tree. Protecting the tree bark will avoid infections, diseases or insect activity. Look out for possible threats that might harm tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to avoid damage and make sure trees show up in the evening.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that repetitively strikes bark at the exact same location can cause damage. If you use sprinklers to water your yard, make sure these do not straight strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches do not get laced.
- Lawn equipment: put on; t get yard equipment near the tree trunks as this can trigger serious damage to the bark.
Trees normally prosper well in existing moisture conditions and don’t need any extra watering. However, depending upon your local environment, you might have to water your trees throughout extended periods of dry spell. If you do need to water trees in the summertime, a periodic deep watering is preferred to a regular misting. In winter season trees shouldn’t need any watering.
We’ve previously blogged about pruning trees as it’s a vital part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you know exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can always employ an expert. The main things to watch out for are:.
- Crossing branches: get rid of the smaller sized branch so the more powerful one can grow without being harmed.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will help the tree heal.
Low branches: eliminate branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also get rid of low branches for aesthetic purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 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 have to touch the trunk.
- Plant grass or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and enhance the soil. Ensure your plants can prosper in the shade and that their roots don’t take on the tree.
