Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be taken for given but extreme weather condition can take its toll. It is necessary to keep trees healthy and aim to avoid illness or weather damage.
Among the first things you can do is learn about the trees you want to take care of and their particular needs. If you’re not exactly sure about the kind of tree you have, there are numerous resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When investigating trees, the main things to watch out for are:

When you know more about your trees, follow these 5 ideas to keep your trees resilient 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.
Protect the bark.
Think of the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Securing the tree bark will avoid infections, illness or insect activity. Watch out for prospective threats that could damage tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to prevent damage and make certain trees are visible during the night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again hits bark at the same place can cause damage. If you use sprinklers to water your yard, make certain these don’t straight hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches don’t get entwined.
- Lawn equipment: put on; t get yard devices near the tree trunks as this can cause severe damage to the bark.
Trees typically grow well in existing wetness conditions and don’t need any extra watering. However, depending upon your local climate, you may have to water your trees during extended durations of drought. If you do need to water trees in the summer, 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 an essential part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly employ a professional. The main things to keep an eye out for are:.
- Crossing branches: remove the smaller branch so the more powerful one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a tidy cut will assist the tree recover.
Low branches: remove branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can likewise eliminate low branches for aesthetic purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 methods you can make certain that the soil around your tree is abundant in nutrients.
- Usage mulch. Spread out a layer of mulch around your tree, about 2 to 4 inches thick. The mulch does not have to touch the trunk.
- Plant turf or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and enhance the soil. Make sure your plants can grow in the shade and that their roots do not compete with the tree.
