Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be considered given however intense weather condition can take its toll. It is essential to keep trees healthy and try to prevent diseases or weather damage.
Among the first things you can do is discover the trees you wish to take care of and their specific needs. If you’re not sure about the type of tree you have, there are many resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When looking into trees, the main points to watch out for are:
- Type of soil required
- Amount of water required
- Specific sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
When you know more about your trees, follow these 5 suggestions to keep your trees durable and healthy.
Protect the roots.
Focus on the zone around a tree up to where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone however this is the area where roots are more delicate. The key is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep absorbing water and oxygen.
Protect the bark.
Consider the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will prevent infections, diseases or insect activity. Watch out for potential threats that might damage tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Remove lower branches to avoid damage and ensure trees show up in the evening.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that repetitively strikes bark at the same location can cause damage. If you use sprinklers to water your yard, ensure these don’t directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches don’t get laced.
- Lawn devices: don; t get lawn devices near to the tree trunks as this can trigger severe damage to the bark.
Trees typically thrive well in existing wetness conditions and do not require any additional watering. Nevertheless, depending upon your local environment, you might need to water your trees throughout extended durations of drought. If you do need to water trees in the summertime, a periodic deep watering is chosen to a frequent misting. In winter trees should not need any watering.
We’ve formerly blogged about pruning trees as it’s a crucial part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly work with a professional. The main points to keep an eye 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 effect). You can also get rid of 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.
- 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 turf or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and enrich the soil. Make certain your plants can prosper in the shade and that their roots don’t compete with the tree.
