Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be taken for given but extreme weather condition can take its toll. It is necessary to keep trees healthy and aim to prevent diseases or weather condition damage.
Among the very first things you can do is find out about the trees you want to take care of and their particular needs. If you’re uncertain about the sort of tree you have, there are numerous resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When researching trees, the main things to look out for are:
- Type of soil required
- Quantity of water required
- Particular sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
When you know more about your trees, follow these 5 pointers to keep your trees resistant and healthy.
Protect the roots.
Focus on the zone around a tree approximately 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 taking in water and oxygen.
Secure the bark.
Think of the bark as an armour that safeguards the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will avoid infections, diseases or insect activity. Look out for potential dangers that could damage tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to avoid breakage and ensure trees are visible during the night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that repetitively hits bark at the same place can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, make sure 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 braided.
- Lawn devices: put on; t get yard equipment close to the tree trunks as this can trigger severe damage to the bark.
Trees normally prosper well in existing moisture conditions and do not need any additional watering. However, depending upon your local climate, you may need to water your trees throughout extended periods of drought. If you do need to water trees in the summer, an occasional deep watering is preferred to a regular misting. In winter season trees shouldn’t need any watering.
We’ve previously discussed 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 constantly employ a professional. The main points to look out for are:.
- Crossing branches: remove the smaller branch so the more powerful one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a tidy cut will assist the tree recover.
Low branches: eliminate branches that are low and are susceptible to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can also eliminate low branches for aesthetic purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 ways you can ensure 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 need to touch the trunk.
- Plant yard or some type of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and enrich the soil. Make certain your plants can grow in the shade and that their roots don’t compete with the tree.
