Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be taken for given however extreme weather can take its toll. It is necessary to keep trees healthy and attempt to avoid illness or weather damage.
Among the very first things you can do is learn more about the trees you wish to care for and their particular needs. If you’re uncertain about the type of tree you have, there are numerous resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When investigating trees, the main things to keep an eye out for are:

As soon as you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 pointers to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Safeguard 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 secret is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep soaking up water and oxygen.
Safeguard the bark.
Think of the bark as an armour that protects the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will avoid infections, diseases or insect activity. Keep an eye out for potential risks that might damage tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to prevent breakage and make certain trees are visible in the evening.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that over and over again hits bark at the very same location can trigger damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your lawn, make sure these do not straight hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches don’t get braided.
- Lawn equipment: don; t get lawn devices close to the tree trunks as this can cause serious damage to the bark.
Trees usually flourish well in existing moisture conditions and don’t need any extra watering. Nevertheless, depending upon your regional climate, you may have to water your trees during extended periods of drought. If you do have to water trees in the summertime, an occasional deep watering is chosen to a regular misting. In winter trees shouldn’t need any watering.
We’ve formerly blogged about pruning trees as it’s a vital part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand what you are doing, otherwise you can always hire a professional. The main things to look out for are:.
- Crossing branches: get rid of the smaller sized branch so the more powerful one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a tidy cut will assist the tree heal.
Low branches: remove branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can also eliminate low branches for aesthetic purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two ways you can make sure 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 need to touch the trunk.
- Plant yard or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and enhance the soil. Make certain your plants can grow in the shade and that their roots do not compete with the tree.
