Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be taken for granted but extreme weather condition can take its toll. It is necessary to keep trees healthy and aim to prevent diseases or weather damage.
Among the very first things you can do is learn more about the trees you wish to take care of and their specific needs. If you’re not exactly sure about the sort of tree you have, there are many resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When researching trees, the main things to look out for are:
- Kind of soil required
- Amount of water needed
- Particular sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
As soon as you know more about your trees, follow these 5 pointers to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Secure 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 sensitive. The key is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep soaking up water and oxygen.
Protect the bark.
Think about the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Protecting the tree bark will avoid infections, illness or insect activity. Watch out for potential risks that could harm tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to avoid damage and ensure trees show up in the evening.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that repetitively hits bark at the same location can trigger damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your lawn, ensure these don’t straight hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches do not get entwined.
- Lawn devices: don; t get lawn devices close to the tree trunks as this can trigger serious damage to the bark.
Trees normally prosper well in existing wetness conditions and do not need any additional watering. However, depending upon your local environment, you may have to water your trees throughout extended durations of drought. If you do need to water trees in the summer, an occasional deep watering is preferred to a regular misting. In winter trees should not need any watering.
We’ve formerly written about pruning trees as it’s an important part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you know exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can always hire an expert. The main things to look out for are:.
- Crossing branches: eliminate the smaller sized branch so the stronger one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will help the tree heal.
Low branches: remove branches that are low and are susceptible to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also get rid of low branches for visual functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 ways you can ensure 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 need to touch the trunk.
- Plant yard or some type of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Make sure your plants can thrive in the shade and that their roots don’t compete with the tree.
