Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be considered granted but extreme weather condition can take its toll. It is necessary to keep trees healthy and aim to avoid illness or weather condition damage.
One of the very first things you can do is find out about the trees you wish to look after and their specific needs. If you’re not sure about the sort of tree you have, there are many resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When investigating trees, the main things to watch out for are:
- Kind of soil needed
- Amount of water required
- Specific level of sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
As soon as you know more about your trees, follow these 5 tips to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Protect the roots.
Focus on the zone around a tree approximately 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 absorbing water and oxygen.
Protect the bark.
Think of the bark as an armour that protects the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will prevent infections, diseases or insect activity. Look out for prospective dangers that might damage tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to prevent breakage and make sure trees are visible in the evening.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again strikes bark at the same place can cause damage. If you use sprinklers to water your yard, make certain these do not directly strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches don’t get entwined.
- Lawn devices: don; t get yard equipment close to the tree trunks as this can cause severe damage to the bark.
Trees usually grow well in existing wetness conditions and do not require any additional watering. However, depending upon your regional climate, you may need to water your trees throughout extended durations of drought. If you do need to water trees in the summertime, an occasional deep watering is preferred to a frequent misting. In winter trees shouldn’t require any watering.
We’ve formerly written about pruning trees as it’s an important part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand what you are doing, otherwise you can always hire a professional. The main things to watch out for are:.
- Crossing branches: get rid of the smaller sized branch so the more powerful 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 vulnerable to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also remove low branches for visual purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 methods you can make certain that the soil around your tree is abundant 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 enhance the soil. Make sure your plants can thrive in the shade and that their roots don’t compete with the tree.
