Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be considered granted but extreme weather condition can take its toll. It is essential to keep trees healthy and aim to prevent diseases or weather condition damage.
Among the very first things you can do is find out about the trees you wish to take care of and their particular needs. If you’re uncertain about the kind of tree you have, there are many resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When looking into trees, the main points to look out for are:
- Type of soil needed
- Amount of water needed
- Particular sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
Once you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 ideas to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Protect 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 sensitive. The key is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep absorbing water and oxygen.
Protect the bark.
Consider the bark as an armour that safeguards the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will avoid infections, illness or insect activity. Keep an eye out for potential threats that could harm tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Remove lower branches to avoid damage and ensure trees are visible in the evening.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again hits bark at the exact same place can cause damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your yard, make sure these don’t straight strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches don’t get laced.
- Yard devices: don; t get yard equipment near to the tree trunks as this can cause serious damage to the bark.
Trees typically thrive well in existing moisture conditions and don’t need any additional watering. However, depending on your regional environment, you might need to water your trees throughout extended durations of drought. If you do need to water trees in the summer, an occasional deep watering is chosen to a frequent misting. In winter trees should not need any watering.
We’ve formerly blogged about pruning trees as it’s a vital part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you know what you are doing, otherwise you can always employ an expert. The main things to keep an eye out for are:.
- Crossing branches: eliminate the smaller sized branch so the stronger one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a tidy cut will assist the tree recover.
Low branches: eliminate branches that are low and are vulnerable to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also eliminate low branches for aesthetic purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two ways you can make certain that the soil around your tree is abundant in nutrients.
- Use mulch. Spread 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 kind of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and enhance the soil. Make certain your plants can flourish in the shade and that their roots don’t take on the tree.
