Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be considered granted but intense weather can take its toll. It is necessary to keep trees healthy and aim to prevent illness or weather condition damage.
Among the very first things you can do is learn more about the trees you want to look after and their particular requirements. If you’re not exactly sure about the type of tree you have, there are numerous resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When looking into trees, the main things to look out for are:
- Type of soil required
- Amount of water needed
- Specific sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
Once you know more about your trees, follow these 5 tips to keep your trees durable 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 location where roots are more delicate. The secret is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep absorbing water and oxygen.
Secure the bark.
Consider the bark as an armour that safeguards the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will avoid infections, illness or insect activity. Look out for prospective risks that might harm tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Remove lower branches to avoid breakage and ensure trees are visible in the evening.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again strikes bark at the exact same location can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, make sure these don’t straight hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches do not get braided.
- Yard equipment: don; t get yard equipment close to the tree trunks as this can trigger severe damage to the bark.
Trees usually thrive well in existing moisture conditions and don’t require any extra watering. However, depending upon your local climate, you may need to water your trees during extended durations of dry spell. If you do need to water trees in the summertime, an occasional deep watering is preferred to a frequent misting. In winter trees should not need any watering.
We’ve formerly written about pruning trees as it’s an important part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you know what you are doing, otherwise you can always hire a professional. The main things to keep an eye out for are:.
- Crossing branches: remove the smaller sized branch so the stronger one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a tidy cut will help the tree heal.
Low branches: remove branches that are low and are vulnerable to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can also eliminate low branches for aesthetic functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 methods you can make certain that the soil around your tree is abundant in nutrients.
- Usage mulch. Spread out a layer of mulch around your tree, about 2 to 4 inches thick. The mulch does not have to touch the trunk.
- Plant lawn or some type of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and enrich the soil. Make sure your plants can flourish in the shade and that their roots do not compete with the tree.
