Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be taken for approved but extreme weather can take its toll. It is necessary to keep trees healthy and try to avoid illness or weather damage.
Among the very first things you can do is learn more about the trees you want to care for and their particular needs. If you’re unsure 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 look out for are:
- Type of soil required
- Amount of water required
- Specific sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
When you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 ideas to keep your trees resistant and healthy.
Safeguard the roots.
Concentrate on the zone around a tree up to where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone however this is the location where roots are more delicate. The secret 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 protects the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will prevent infections, illness or insect activity. Watch out for possible risks that might damage tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Remove lower branches to prevent breakage and make sure trees show up during the night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that repetitively strikes bark at the very same place can cause damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, ensure these don’t straight hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches do not get entwined.
- Lawn equipment: put on; t get lawn devices near the tree trunks as this can cause major damage to the bark.
Trees normally prosper well in existing moisture conditions and do not need any extra watering. However, depending on your regional climate, you might need to water your trees during extended durations of dry spell. If you do need to water trees in the summer season, a periodic deep watering is preferred to a regular misting. In winter season trees shouldn’t need any watering.
We’ve previously written about pruning trees as it’s a crucial part of tree maintenance. 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: get rid of the smaller sized branch so the more powerful one can grow without being harmed.
- Broken and dead branches: a tidy cut will assist the tree heal.
Low branches: remove branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can likewise get rid of low branches for visual purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two methods 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 have to touch the trunk.
- Plant lawn or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant product 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.
