Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be taken for approved but intense weather condition can take its toll. It is necessary to keep trees healthy and try to prevent diseases or weather condition damage.
One of the very first things you can do is discover the trees you wish to take care of and their particular needs. If you’re not sure about the kind of tree you have, there are lots of resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When researching trees, the main things to keep an eye out for are:
- Type of soil needed
- Amount of water needed
- Particular sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
Once you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 ideas to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Safeguard the roots.
Concentrate 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 secret is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep absorbing water and oxygen.
Safeguard the bark.
Think about the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will avoid infections, illness or insect activity. Watch out for prospective threats that could damage tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to prevent damage and make sure trees show up at night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that over and over again hits bark at the same place can cause damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your lawn, ensure these don’t directly strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches don’t get entwined.
- Lawn equipment: don; t get lawn devices near the tree trunks as this can cause severe damage to the bark.
Trees generally prosper well in existing moisture conditions and do not need any additional watering. Nevertheless, depending upon your local environment, you might need to water your trees throughout extended durations of dry spell. If you do have to water trees in the summer season, an occasional deep watering is chosen to a frequent misting. In winter season trees should not require any watering.
We’ve formerly written about pruning trees as it’s an important part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand what you are doing, otherwise you can always hire a professional. The main points to keep an eye 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 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 eliminate low branches for visual purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 ways you can make sure that the soil around your tree is rich 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 enhance the soil. Make sure your plants can grow in the shade and that their roots do not take on the tree.
