Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can frequently be considered given however extreme weather condition can take its toll. It is very important to keep trees healthy and attempt to prevent illness or weather condition damage.
One of the very first things you can do is learn more about the trees you want to look after and their specific needs. If you’re uncertain about the sort of tree you have, there are lots of 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
- Particular sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
When you know more about your trees, follow these 5 tips to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Secure the roots.
Focus on the zone around a tree up to where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone however this is the location where roots are more sensitive. The secret is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep soaking up water and oxygen.
Protect the bark.
Think about the bark as an armour that protects the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will avoid infections, illness or insect activity. Watch out for potential dangers that could damage tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to avoid damage and make sure trees are visible at night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that repetitively hits bark at the very same place can cause damage. If you use sprinklers to water your yard, make certain these don’t straight strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches don’t get laced.
- Lawn devices: put on; t get lawn devices close to the tree trunks as this can cause serious damage to the bark.
Trees usually thrive well in existing moisture conditions and don’t need any extra watering. Nevertheless, depending on your regional climate, you may have to water your trees throughout 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 require any watering.
We’ve previously discussed pruning trees as it’s an essential part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you know exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can always work with a professional. The main things to look out for are:.
- Crossing branches: eliminate the smaller branch so the stronger one can grow without being harmed.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will assist the tree heal.
Low branches: get rid of branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can also get rid of low branches for aesthetic functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two methods you can make certain that the soil around your tree is abundant in nutrients.
- Use mulch. Spread out 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 type of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and enrich the soil. Make certain your plants can grow in the shade and that their roots do not take on the tree.
