Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be taken for granted but intense weather condition can take its toll. It’s important to keep trees healthy and aim to avoid illness or weather condition damage.
One of the first things you can do is find out about the trees you want to look after and their particular needs. If you’re not exactly sure about the kind of tree you have, there are many resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When investigating trees, the main points to look out for are:
- Type of soil needed
- Quantity of water required
- Particular sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
Once you know more about your trees, follow these 5 suggestions to keep your trees resistant and healthy.
Protect 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 delicate. The secret is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep taking in water and oxygen.
Safeguard the bark.
Consider the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Protecting the tree bark will prevent infections, diseases or insect activity. Keep an eye out for possible risks that might harm tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to avoid damage and make sure trees are visible during the night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again strikes bark at the exact same location can trigger damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your yard, make sure these don’t straight hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches do not get laced.
- Yard devices: wear; t get lawn equipment near to the tree trunks as this can cause major damage to the bark.
Trees usually grow well in existing moisture conditions and do not need any extra watering. However, depending on your local climate, you might need to water your trees during extended durations of dry spell. If you do have to water trees in the summer, a periodic deep watering is preferred 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 keep an eye out for are:.
- Crossing branches: eliminate the smaller branch so the more powerful one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will assist the tree recover.
Low branches: remove branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also remove low branches for aesthetic functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 methods you can make certain that the soil around your tree is rich in nutrients.
- Usage 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 kind of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and enrich the soil. Make sure your plants can prosper in the shade and that their roots do not take on the tree.
