Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be taken for given but intense weather can take its toll. It is necessary to keep trees healthy and aim to avoid diseases or weather condition damage.
Among the first things you can do is find out about the trees you wish to look after and their particular needs. If you’re not exactly sure about the kind of tree you have, there are numerous resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When looking into trees, the main things to keep an eye out for are:
- Type of soil needed
- Amount of water required
- Specific level of sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
Once you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 ideas to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Secure the roots.
Concentrate on the zone around a tree as much as 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 absorbing water and oxygen.
Secure the bark.
Consider the bark as an armour that safeguards the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will prevent infections, illness or insect activity. Watch out for prospective threats that might damage tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to prevent damage and make sure trees are visible in the evening.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that repetitively hits bark at the same place can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, ensure these don’t straight hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches do not get laced.
- Yard devices: don; t get yard devices near to the tree trunks as this can cause severe damage to the bark.
Trees typically thrive well in existing moisture conditions and do not require any additional watering. However, depending upon your regional climate, you may need to water your trees throughout extended periods of dry spell. If you do have to water trees in the summer, an occasional deep watering is chosen to a frequent misting. In winter season trees shouldn’t require any watering.
We’ve formerly written about pruning trees as it’s a vital part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you know exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can always hire a professional. 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 tidy cut will help the tree heal.
Low branches: get rid of branches that are low and are susceptible to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also remove 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 need to touch the trunk.
- Plant grass or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and enhance the soil. Make certain your plants can prosper in the shade and that their roots do not take on the tree.
