Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be taken for given however intense weather condition can take its toll. It is essential to keep trees healthy and try to prevent diseases or weather condition damage.
One of the very first things you can do is learn about the trees you want to take care of and their specific requirements. If you’re not sure about the type of tree you have, there are many resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When researching trees, the main points to look out for are:
- Type of soil required
- Quantity of water required
- Particular level of sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
When you know more about your trees, follow these 5 pointers to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Safeguard the roots.
Focus on the zone around a tree as much as where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone however this is the area where roots are more delicate. The key 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 protects the tree. Protecting the tree bark will prevent infections, illness or insect activity. Keep an eye out for possible risks that could damage tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to avoid damage and ensure trees are visible at night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that over and over again strikes bark at the same location can cause damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, ensure these do not directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches do not get entwined.
- Lawn devices: put on; t get yard equipment near to the tree trunks as this can cause major damage to the bark.
Trees generally flourish well in existing moisture conditions and do not need any extra watering. However, depending upon your local climate, you might have 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 chosen to a frequent misting. In winter season trees should not need 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 know exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can always work with an expert. The main things to look out for are:.
- Crossing branches: eliminate the smaller branch so the stronger one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a tidy cut will help the tree heal.
Low branches: get rid of branches that are low and are susceptible to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can also remove low branches for visual functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 ways you can ensure 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 need to touch the trunk.
- Plant turf or some type of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and enrich the soil. Ensure your plants can flourish in the shade and that their roots do not compete with the tree.
