Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be considered approved but intense weather condition can take its toll. It is very important to keep trees healthy and aim to prevent diseases or weather damage.
One of the very first things you can do is learn more about the trees you want to take care of and their specific needs. If you’re unsure about the sort of tree you have, there are many resources online to help 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 sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
Once you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 pointers to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Protect the roots.
Concentrate on the zone around a tree as much as where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone but this is the area 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.
Protect the bark.
Think of the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Protecting the tree bark will prevent infections, illness or insect activity. Watch out for potential threats that might damage tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to avoid damage and make certain trees are visible in the evening.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that repetitively hits bark at the very same place can cause damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, make sure these do not straight hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches don’t get braided.
- Lawn devices: wear; t get lawn equipment near to the tree trunks as this can cause serious damage to the bark.
Trees typically prosper well in existing wetness conditions and do not require any extra watering. However, depending on your local environment, you may need to water your trees during extended periods of drought. If you do need to water trees in the summertime, an occasional deep watering is chosen to a frequent misting. In winter season trees should not need any watering.
We’ve previously blogged about pruning trees as it’s a crucial part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you know exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly work with a professional. 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 harmed.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will help the tree recover.
Low branches: eliminate branches that are low and are vulnerable to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also eliminate low branches for aesthetic purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two methods you can ensure that the soil around your tree is rich in nutrients.
- Usage 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 kind of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Ensure your plants can prosper in the shade and that their roots do not take on the tree.
