Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be considered given but extreme weather condition can take its toll. It’s important to keep trees healthy and attempt to prevent illness or weather condition damage.
Among the first things you can do is learn about the trees you wish to look after and their particular requirements. If you’re not exactly sure about the kind of tree you have, there are lots of resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When investigating trees, the main things to look out for are:
- Type of soil required
- Quantity of water required
- Particular sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
Once you know more about your trees, follow these 5 pointers to keep your trees durable and healthy.
Secure the roots.
Concentrate on the zone around a tree as much as 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 soaking up water and oxygen.
Safeguard the bark.
Think of the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Securing the tree bark will avoid infections, diseases or insect activity. Watch out for potential dangers that might harm tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Remove lower branches to avoid damage and make certain trees are visible during the night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that repetitively hits bark at the exact same place can cause damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, ensure these do not straight hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches don’t get entwined.
- Lawn devices: don; t get lawn equipment close to the tree trunks as this can trigger severe damage to the bark.
Trees normally grow well in existing moisture conditions and don’t require any additional watering. Nevertheless, depending upon your local climate, you may need to water your trees during extended periods of drought. If you do need to water trees in the summer season, an occasional deep watering is chosen to a frequent misting. In winter trees shouldn’t require any watering.
We’ve formerly written about pruning trees as it’s a vital part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can always hire a professional. The main things to keep an eye out for are:.
- Crossing branches: get rid of the smaller sized branch so the more powerful one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will assist the tree heal.
Low branches: remove branches that are low and are vulnerable to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also remove low branches for aesthetic purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two ways you can ensure 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 lawn or some type of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and enrich the soil. Make certain your plants can grow in the shade and that their roots do not compete with the tree.
