Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be considered granted but intense weather condition can take its toll. It is very important to keep trees healthy and attempt to avoid illness or weather damage.
Among the very first things you can do is learn about the trees you want to take care of and their particular needs. If you’re uncertain about the sort of tree you have, there are lots of 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:
- Kind of soil needed
- Quantity of water needed
- Particular sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
As soon as you know 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 approximately where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone however this is the location 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.
Secure the bark.
Think of the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Securing the tree bark will prevent infections, diseases or insect activity. Look out for potential 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 damage and make certain trees are visible during the night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that over and over again hits bark at the exact same place can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, ensure these do not straight hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches do not get laced.
- Lawn equipment: wear; t get lawn equipment near to the tree trunks as this can trigger serious damage to the bark.
Trees usually thrive well in existing moisture conditions and do not require any extra watering. Nevertheless, depending on your regional environment, you might have to water your trees during extended periods of drought. If you do have to water trees in the summertime, a periodic deep watering is chosen to a regular misting. In winter season trees shouldn’t need any watering.
We’ve formerly written about pruning trees as it’s a crucial part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you know exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can always hire an expert. The main points to watch out for are:.
- Crossing branches: get rid of the smaller sized branch so the stronger one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will help the tree recover.
Low branches: eliminate branches that are low and are susceptible to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also get rid of low branches for aesthetic functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 methods you can make sure 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 yard or some type of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and enhance the soil. Ensure your plants can prosper in the shade and that their roots don’t compete with the tree.
