Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be considered granted but intense weather can take its toll. It’s important to keep trees healthy and aim to prevent illness or weather condition damage.
Among the first things you can do is learn more about the trees you want to take care of and their specific requirements. If you’re uncertain about the type of tree you have, there are numerous resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When researching trees, the main points to look out for are:
- Kind of soil required
- Amount of water needed
- Specific sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
As soon as you know more about your trees, follow these 5 ideas 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 sensitive. The key is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep taking in water and oxygen.
Protect the bark.
Think of the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Securing the tree bark will avoid infections, illness or insect activity. Watch out for prospective risks that might damage tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Remove lower branches to avoid damage and ensure trees show up during the night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that repetitively strikes bark at the same location can trigger damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your lawn, make sure these do not straight strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches do not get braided.
- Lawn devices: put on; t get yard equipment near the tree trunks as this can trigger severe damage to the bark.
Trees normally flourish well in existing moisture conditions and don’t require any extra watering. However, depending on your local environment, you might have to water your trees throughout extended periods of dry spell. If you do need to water trees in the summer, a periodic deep watering is chosen to a regular misting. In winter season trees shouldn’t require any watering.
We’ve previously written about pruning trees as it’s an important part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you know exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly hire a professional. The main things to watch out for are:.
- Crossing branches: get rid of the smaller sized branch so the stronger one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will help the tree heal.
Low branches: get rid of branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can also eliminate low branches for visual functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 ways you can make sure 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 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. Ensure your plants can flourish in the shade and that their roots don’t take on the tree.
