Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be considered granted however intense weather can take its toll. It is essential to keep trees healthy and try to avoid illness or weather damage.
One of the first things you can do is find out about the trees you want to care for and their specific needs. If you’re unsure about the kind of tree you have, there are lots of resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When investigating trees, the main things to keep an eye out for are:
- Type of soil required
- Amount of water required
- Particular level of sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
Once you know more about your trees, follow these 5 tips 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 absorbing water and oxygen.
Safeguard the bark.
Consider the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will avoid infections, diseases or insect activity. Keep an eye out for prospective risks that might harm tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Remove lower branches to avoid damage and ensure trees show up at night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that over and over again hits bark at the same location can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your yard, make certain these don’t straight hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches do not get entwined.
- Yard devices: put on; t get lawn equipment close to the tree trunks as this can cause severe damage to the bark.
Trees normally thrive well in existing moisture conditions and do not need any extra watering. However, depending upon your local environment, you might have to water your trees during extended periods of dry spell. If you do have to water trees in the summer season, a periodic deep watering is chosen to a regular misting. In winter trees shouldn’t require any watering.
We’ve formerly discussed pruning trees as it’s an essential part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can always employ a professional. The main points to watch out for are:.
- Crossing branches: remove the smaller sized branch so the stronger one can grow without being harmed.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will assist the tree recover.
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 aesthetic purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 ways you can ensure 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 grass or some type of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Ensure your plants can prosper in the shade and that their roots do not compete with the tree.
