Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be taken for given but intense weather can take its toll. It’s important to keep trees healthy and aim to avoid diseases or weather condition damage.
One of the very first things you can do is discover the trees you wish to look after and their specific requirements. If you’re uncertain about the sort of tree you have, there are numerous resources online to help 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 required
- Quantity of water required
- Specific level of sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
When you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 ideas to keep your trees durable and healthy.
Secure the roots.
Concentrate 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 secret is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep taking in water and oxygen.
Safeguard the bark.
Think about the bark as an armour that safeguards the tree. Securing the tree bark will avoid infections, diseases or insect activity. Keep an eye out for prospective threats that could damage tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to prevent damage and ensure trees are visible at night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again strikes bark at the exact same location can cause damage. If you use sprinklers to water your yard, make certain these do not directly strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches don’t get braided.
- Lawn devices: put on; t get lawn equipment near the tree trunks as this can trigger major damage to the bark.
Trees normally grow well in existing moisture conditions and do not need any extra watering. Nevertheless, depending on your regional environment, you may have to water your trees during extended durations of dry spell. If you do have to water trees in the summer season, a periodic deep watering is preferred to a frequent misting. In winter season trees shouldn’t need 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 what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly employ an expert. The main points to keep an eye out for are:.
- Crossing branches: remove 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 recover.
Low branches: get rid of branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can also eliminate low branches for visual purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 ways 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 material will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Make certain your plants can prosper in the shade and that their roots don’t take on the tree.
