Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be taken for approved however intense weather can take its toll. It is essential to keep trees healthy and try to prevent diseases or weather damage.
One of the very first things you can do is learn more about the trees you wish to take care of and their particular needs. If you’re unsure about the kind 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 watch out for are:
- Type of soil required
- Amount of water needed
- Specific sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
Once you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 pointers to keep your trees resistant 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 area where roots are more sensitive. The key is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep absorbing water and oxygen.
Secure the bark.
Think about the bark as an armour that protects the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will avoid infections, diseases or insect activity. Keep an eye out for possible threats that could damage tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to avoid damage and make sure trees show up in the evening.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that repetitively hits bark at the exact same location can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your yard, make certain these don’t directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches do not get laced.
- Lawn devices: don; t get lawn equipment close to the tree trunks as this can cause severe damage to the bark.
Trees generally grow well in existing wetness conditions and do not need any extra watering. Nevertheless, depending upon your regional environment, you might need to water your trees during extended periods of dry spell. If you do need to water trees in the summertime, an occasional deep watering is chosen to a regular misting. In winter season trees should not need any watering.
We’ve formerly discussed 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 work with a professional. The main points to watch 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 tidy cut will help the tree heal.
Low branches: eliminate branches that are low and are vulnerable to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also get rid of low branches for aesthetic purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 ways 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 lawn or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Make sure your plants can prosper in the shade and that their roots do not take on the tree.
