Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be taken for granted but extreme weather can take its toll. It is essential to keep trees healthy and aim to prevent illness or weather damage.
One of the very first things you can do is find out about the trees you want to care for and their specific requirements. If you’re not sure about the type of tree you have, there are lots of resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When looking into trees, the main things to look out for are:
- Type of soil required
- Amount of water required
- Particular sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
Once you know more about your trees, follow these 5 pointers 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 but this is the location where roots are more delicate. The key is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep taking in water and oxygen.
Safeguard the bark.
Think about the bark as an armour that safeguards the tree. Securing the tree bark will prevent infections, diseases or insect activity. Watch out for prospective threats that might damage tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Remove lower branches to avoid breakage and make certain trees are visible at night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that over and over again strikes bark at the same location can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, make certain these don’t straight strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches don’t get entwined.
- Yard equipment: wear; t get yard equipment near to the tree trunks as this can cause serious damage to the bark.
Trees normally flourish well in existing moisture conditions and do not require any additional watering. However, depending on your regional climate, you may need to water your trees during extended durations of dry spell. If you do need to water trees in the summertime, a periodic deep watering is chosen to a regular misting. In winter season trees should not need any watering.
We’ve formerly blogged about pruning trees as it’s a crucial 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 things to keep an eye out for are:.
- Crossing branches: eliminate the smaller branch so the stronger one can grow without being harmed.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will assist the tree recover.
Low branches: eliminate branches that are low and are vulnerable to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can also eliminate low branches for visual purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two ways 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 grass or some type of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Ensure your plants can flourish in the shade and that their roots do not compete with the tree.
