Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be considered approved but intense weather condition can take its toll. It is very important 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 want to take care of and their specific requirements. If you’re not sure about the kind of tree you have, there are many resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When looking into trees, the main things to watch out for are:
- Kind of soil required
- Quantity of water needed
- Specific level of sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
Once you know more about your trees, follow these 5 pointers to keep your trees durable and healthy.
Protect the roots.
Concentrate on the zone around a tree approximately where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone however this is the area where roots are more sensitive. The secret is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep soaking up water and oxygen.
Protect the bark.
Consider the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Protecting the tree bark will prevent infections, illness or insect activity. Look out for potential risks that could damage tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Remove lower branches to avoid breakage and ensure trees are visible during the night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that over and over again hits bark at the exact same location can trigger damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your lawn, ensure these do not straight hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches don’t get laced.
- Lawn devices: don; t get yard equipment close to the tree trunks as this can trigger severe damage to the bark.
Trees usually prosper well in existing wetness conditions and do not need any extra watering. However, depending on 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, a periodic deep watering is preferred to a frequent misting. In winter trees shouldn’t require any watering.
We’ve previously written about pruning trees as it’s a vital 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 points to watch out for are:.
- Crossing branches: eliminate the smaller sized branch so the stronger one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a tidy cut will assist the tree heal.
Low branches: eliminate branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also eliminate low branches for aesthetic functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two ways you can make sure 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 yard or some type of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Make certain your plants can grow in the shade and that their roots do not take on the tree.
