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 illness or weather condition damage.
One of the very first things you can do is discover the trees you wish to look after and their particular needs. If you’re not exactly sure about the type of tree you have, there are many resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When investigating trees, the main things to look out for are:
- Kind of soil required
- Amount of water needed
- Particular sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
When you know more about your trees, follow these 5 ideas to keep your trees resistant and healthy.
Protect the roots.
Focus 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 key is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep absorbing water and oxygen.
Safeguard the bark.
Think of the bark as an armour that protects the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will prevent infections, diseases or insect activity. Keep an eye out for possible risks that might damage tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to avoid breakage and ensure trees are visible during the night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that repetitively strikes bark at the same place can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, make certain these don’t straight hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches don’t get laced.
- Yard equipment: don; t get lawn equipment near to the tree trunks as this can trigger major damage to the bark.
Trees normally grow well in existing wetness conditions and do not need any additional watering. However, depending on your local climate, you may need to water your trees throughout extended durations of drought. If you do have to water trees in the summer, a periodic deep watering is preferred to a regular misting. In winter season trees should not require any watering.
We’ve previously blogged about pruning trees as it’s a vital part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can always employ a professional. The main points to watch out for are:.
- Crossing branches: remove 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: get rid of branches that are low and are susceptible to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can likewise eliminate low branches for visual purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 methods you can ensure 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 have to touch the trunk.
- Plant turf or some type of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and enrich the soil. Make certain your plants can prosper in the shade and that their roots do not compete with the tree.
