Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be taken for approved however intense weather condition can take its toll. It’s important to keep trees healthy and aim to prevent diseases or weather damage.
One of the very 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 sort of tree you have, there are numerous resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When investigating trees, the main things to watch out for are:
- Kind of soil needed
- Amount of water required
- Particular sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
Once you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 pointers to keep your trees resistant and healthy.
Protect the roots.
Focus on the zone around a tree approximately where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone however 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 soaking up water and oxygen.
Safeguard the bark.
Consider the bark as an armour that safeguards the tree. Protecting the tree bark will avoid infections, diseases or insect activity. Look out for prospective risks that could damage tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Eliminate 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 trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your yard, make sure these don’t directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches do not get laced.
- Yard equipment: don; t get yard equipment close to the tree trunks as this can trigger major damage to the bark.
Trees usually prosper well in existing moisture conditions and don’t need any extra watering. However, depending on your local climate, you might have to water your trees during extended durations of drought. If you do have to water trees in the summer, a periodic deep watering is chosen to a regular misting. In winter season trees shouldn’t require any watering.
We’ve previously 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 always hire a professional. The main points to look out for are:.
- Crossing branches: eliminate 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 heal.
Low branches: remove branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also remove low branches for visual functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two methods you can make certain that the soil around your tree is rich 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 material will decay in the ground and enrich the soil. Make sure your plants can prosper in the shade and that their roots don’t take on the tree.
