Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be taken for approved however extreme weather can take its toll. It’s important to keep trees healthy and aim to prevent illness or weather damage.
One of the first things you can do is discover the trees you want to look after 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 things to keep an eye out for are:

Once you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 tips to keep your trees resistant and healthy.
Secure 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 secret is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep soaking up water and oxygen.
Protect the bark.
Think of the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Protecting the tree bark will avoid infections, illness or insect activity. Watch out for prospective risks that could damage tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Remove lower branches to prevent breakage and make certain trees show up at night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that over and over again strikes bark at the exact 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 correctly so branches do not get braided.
- Lawn equipment: wear; t get yard equipment near the tree trunks as this can trigger severe damage to the bark.
Trees typically thrive well in existing wetness conditions and do not need any additional watering. However, depending upon your local climate, you might have to water your trees during extended periods of drought. If you do need to water trees in the summertime, a periodic deep watering is preferred to a regular misting. In winter trees should not need any watering.
We’ve previously blogged about pruning trees as it’s an essential part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you know exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can always employ an expert. The main points to watch out for are:.
- Crossing branches: eliminate 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 recover.
Low branches: get rid of branches that are low and are vulnerable to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can likewise eliminate low branches for visual functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 methods you can ensure 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 need to touch the trunk.
- Plant turf or some type of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Make certain your plants can thrive in the shade and that their roots do not compete with the tree.
