Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be considered given but intense 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 want to look after and their particular needs. If you’re not exactly sure about the kind of tree you have, there are lots of resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When investigating trees, the main points to watch out for are:
- Kind of soil required
- Amount of water required
- Particular sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
As soon as you know more about your trees, follow these 5 ideas to keep your trees resistant and healthy.
Safeguard the roots.
Concentrate 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 key is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep soaking up water and oxygen.
Protect the bark.
Think about the bark as an armour that safeguards the tree. Securing the tree bark will prevent infections, illness or insect activity. Look out for potential risks that might damage tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Remove lower branches to prevent breakage and make sure trees show up during the night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that repetitively hits bark at the same place can cause damage. If you use sprinklers to water your yard, make sure these do not directly strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches don’t get laced.
- Yard devices: put on; t get yard equipment near the tree trunks as this can trigger major damage to the bark.
Trees normally grow well in existing wetness conditions and do not need any additional watering. However, depending upon your regional environment, you may need to water your trees throughout extended durations of drought. If you do have 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 written about 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 constantly work with a professional. The main things to look 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 clean cut will help the tree recover.
Low branches: eliminate 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 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 yard or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and enrich the soil. Make certain your plants can flourish in the shade and that their roots do not take on the tree.
