Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be taken for given however intense weather can take its toll. It is very important to keep trees healthy and aim to prevent diseases or weather damage.
Among the first things you can do is find out about the trees you wish to look after and their specific requirements. If you’re not exactly sure about the kind 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:
- Kind of soil needed
- Quantity of water required
- Specific level of sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
Once you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 tips to keep your trees resilient 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 area 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.
Consider the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Securing the tree bark will prevent infections, diseases or insect activity. Keep an eye out for possible risks that could damage tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Remove lower branches to avoid breakage and ensure trees are visible during the night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that repetitively strikes bark at the same place can cause damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your lawn, make sure these don’t directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches don’t get laced.
- Yard equipment: wear; t get lawn devices near the tree trunks as this can cause serious damage to the bark.
Trees usually grow well in existing moisture conditions and don’t need any extra watering. Nevertheless, depending on your local environment, you may have to water your trees during 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 need any watering.
We’ve previously blogged about pruning trees as it’s a crucial part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you know what you are doing, otherwise you can always employ a professional. The main points to watch out for are:.
- Crossing branches: remove the smaller sized branch so the stronger one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will help the tree recover.
Low branches: remove branches that are low and are susceptible to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can also remove low branches for visual functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 methods 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 turf or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and enrich the soil. Make certain your plants can flourish in the shade and that their roots do not take on the tree.
