Safeguard the bark.
Consider the bark as an armour that protects the tree. Securing the tree bark will prevent infections, diseases or insect activity. Watch out for possible threats that might harm tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to avoid damage and ensure trees are visible in the evening.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again hits bark at the exact same location can cause damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your yard, ensure these don’t directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches don’t get laced.

However, depending on your regional environment, you might need to water your trees during extended periods of drought. If you do need to water trees in the summer, a periodic deep watering is preferred to a frequent misting. In winter season trees shouldn’t need any watering.
