Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can frequently be taken for granted however extreme weather can take its toll. It is very important to keep trees healthy and try to prevent diseases or weather condition damage.
One of the first things you can do is learn about the trees you wish to care for and their particular needs. If you’re uncertain about the sort of tree you have, there are lots of resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When researching trees, the main points to look out for are:
- Type of soil needed
- Amount of water required
- Specific sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
When you know more about your trees, follow these 5 tips to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Protect the roots.
Focus on the zone around a tree approximately where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone however 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.
Think of the bark as an armour that protects the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will avoid infections, illness or insect activity. Look out for possible risks that might damage tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to prevent breakage and make sure trees are visible during the night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that repetitively strikes bark at the very same place can cause damage. If you use sprinklers to water your yard, make certain these do not directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches don’t get laced.
- Lawn devices: put on; t get lawn equipment close to the tree trunks as this can trigger major damage to the bark.
Trees typically thrive well in existing wetness conditions and do not need any additional watering. However, depending on your local environment, you might have to water your trees during extended periods of drought. If you do have to water trees in the summer season, an occasional deep watering is preferred to a regular misting. In winter trees shouldn’t require any watering.
We’ve formerly discussed pruning trees as it’s an important part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand what you are doing, otherwise you can always work with an expert. The main points to look out for are:.
- Crossing branches: remove the smaller branch so the stronger one can grow without being harmed.
- Broken and dead branches: a tidy cut will assist 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 aesthetic purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two methods you can ensure that the soil around your tree is abundant 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 yard or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and enhance the soil. Make sure your plants can prosper in the shade and that their roots do not take on the tree.
