Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be considered given but extreme weather can take its toll. It’s important to keep trees healthy and aim to avoid illness or weather condition damage.
One of the first things you can do is discover the trees you wish to look after and their specific needs. 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 researching trees, the main points to keep an eye out for are:
- Kind of soil required
- Amount of water needed
- Particular level of sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
Once you know more about your trees, follow these 5 tips to keep your trees resistant and healthy.
Secure the roots.
Focus 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 absorbing water and oxygen.
Safeguard the bark.
Think of the bark as an armour that protects the tree. Protecting the tree bark will avoid infections, diseases or insect activity. Watch out for prospective dangers that could harm tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to avoid damage and make certain trees show up during the night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again hits bark at the exact same location can cause damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your lawn, make sure these don’t straight strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches don’t get laced.
- Yard equipment: wear; t get lawn equipment near to the tree trunks as this can trigger major damage to the bark.
Trees normally thrive well in existing wetness conditions and do not need any additional watering. However, depending on your regional environment, you might have to water your trees during extended durations of dry spell. If you do need to water trees in the summer season, a periodic deep watering is chosen to a regular misting. In winter season trees shouldn’t require any watering.
We’ve previously written about pruning trees as it’s a crucial part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you know what you are doing, otherwise you can always work with a professional. The main points to watch out for are:.
- Crossing branches: remove the smaller branch so the stronger one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a tidy cut will help the tree recover.
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 methods you can make certain 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 need to touch the trunk.
- Plant turf or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Make certain your plants can thrive in the shade and that their roots do not compete with the tree.
