Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be taken for given however extreme weather condition can take its toll. It is necessary to keep trees healthy and try to avoid diseases or weather condition damage.
One of the first things you can do is find out about the trees you want to care for and their specific requirements. If you’re uncertain about the type of tree you have, there are lots of resources online to help 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
- Quantity of water needed
- Specific level of sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
When you know more about your trees, follow these 5 tips to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Protect the roots.
Concentrate on the zone around a tree up to where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone but this is the area 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.
Secure the bark.
Think about the bark as an armour that protects the tree. Securing the tree bark will avoid infections, diseases or insect activity. Watch out for prospective threats that could harm tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to avoid breakage and make sure trees are visible during the night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that repetitively hits bark at the same place can cause damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, ensure these do not directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches do not get laced.
- Lawn devices: don; t get yard devices close to the tree trunks as this can cause major damage to the bark.
Trees usually prosper well in existing wetness conditions and do not need any additional watering. Nevertheless, depending upon your local climate, you might need to water your trees during extended periods of dry spell. If you do have to water trees in the summertime, a periodic deep watering is preferred to a frequent misting. In winter trees should not require any watering.
We’ve previously discussed pruning trees as it’s an essential part of tree upkeep. 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: 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: get rid of branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can likewise get rid of low branches for aesthetic purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 methods 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 grass 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.
