Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be taken for given however intense weather condition can take its toll. It is essential to keep trees healthy and aim to prevent illness or weather condition damage.
One of the very first things you can do is learn more about the trees you want to care for and their specific needs. If you’re not exactly sure about the kind of tree you have, there are many resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When investigating trees, the main things to keep an eye out for are:
- Type of soil needed
- Amount of water needed
- Particular level of sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
Once you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 suggestions to keep your trees resistant and healthy.
Protect 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 area where roots are more delicate. The secret is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep taking in water and oxygen.
Secure the bark.
Think about the bark as an armour that protects the tree. Securing the tree bark will prevent infections, illness or insect activity. Look out for prospective threats that could harm tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to avoid breakage and ensure trees are visible at night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that repetitively strikes bark at the very same location can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, ensure 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 entwined.
- Yard equipment: don; t get lawn equipment near to the tree trunks as this can cause serious damage to the bark.
Trees generally prosper well in existing wetness conditions and don’t need any extra watering. However, depending on your regional climate, you may need to water your trees throughout extended durations of drought. If you do have to water trees in the summertime, a periodic deep watering is chosen to a frequent misting. In winter season trees shouldn’t need 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 know exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly hire a professional. The main things 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 assist the tree recover.
Low branches: get rid of branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can also eliminate low branches for aesthetic purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two methods you can make sure that the soil around your tree is rich in nutrients.
- Usage 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 lawn or some type of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and enrich the soil. Make sure your plants can thrive in the shade and that their roots don’t take on the tree.
