Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can frequently be considered given however extreme weather can take its toll. It’s important to keep trees healthy and try to prevent illness or weather damage.
Among the first things you can do is find out about the trees you want to take care of and their particular needs. If you’re not exactly sure about the type 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 points to keep an eye out for are:
- Type of soil required
- Quantity of water needed
- Particular sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
Once you know more about your trees, follow these 5 suggestions to keep your trees resistant and healthy.
Safeguard 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 delicate. 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 safeguards the tree. Protecting the tree bark will prevent infections, diseases or insect activity. Look out for possible risks that could damage tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Remove lower branches to avoid damage and make sure trees are visible during the night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again hits bark at the very same location can cause damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, make certain these don’t straight strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches don’t get entwined.
- Yard equipment: don; t get yard devices near the tree trunks as this can cause serious damage to the bark.
Trees usually grow well in existing wetness conditions and do not need any additional watering. Nevertheless, depending on your local climate, you may need to water your trees during extended durations of drought. If you do need to water trees in the summer, an occasional deep watering is preferred to a frequent misting. In winter season trees shouldn’t need any watering.
We’ve formerly blogged about pruning trees as it’s an essential part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand what you are doing, otherwise you can always work with an expert. The main things to look out for are:.
- Crossing branches: get rid of the smaller 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 prone to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can likewise get rid of low branches for aesthetic purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 methods you can ensure that the soil around your tree is rich in nutrients.
- Usage mulch. Spread out a layer of mulch around your tree, about 2 to 4 inches thick. The mulch does not need to touch the trunk.
- Plant turf or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Make sure your plants can grow in the shade and that their roots don’t take on the tree.
