Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be considered granted but extreme weather can take its toll. It is essential to keep trees healthy and try to prevent diseases or weather damage.
One of the very first things you can do is learn about the trees you want to care for and their particular needs. If you’re not exactly sure about the sort of tree you have, there are lots of resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When investigating trees, the main points to look out for are:
- Kind of soil needed
- Amount of water needed
- Specific sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
Once you know more about your trees, follow these 5 ideas to keep your trees resistant and healthy.
Secure the roots.
Concentrate 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 delicate. The key 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 of the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will prevent infections, illness or insect activity. Keep an eye out for potential dangers that might damage tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Remove lower branches to prevent damage and make certain trees show up during the night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again hits bark at the very same location can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, ensure these do not straight strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches don’t get laced.
- Yard equipment: don; t get yard devices near to the tree trunks as this can cause severe damage to the bark.
Trees normally grow well in existing wetness conditions and don’t need any additional watering. However, depending upon your local environment, you might need to water your trees during extended periods of drought. If you do need to water trees in the summer season, an occasional 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 what you are doing, otherwise you can always employ a professional. The main points to keep an eye 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 help the tree heal.
Low branches: eliminate branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also get rid of low branches for aesthetic purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two ways 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 grass or some type of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Make sure your plants can flourish in the shade and that their roots do not take on the tree.
