Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can frequently be considered granted however intense weather can take its toll. It’s important to keep trees healthy and try to prevent diseases or weather condition damage.
One of the first things you can do is learn more about the trees you wish to take care of and their particular requirements. 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 keep an eye out for are:
- Type of soil required
- Amount of water required
- 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 up to where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone but this is the location 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.
Protect the bark.
Think of the bark as an armour that safeguards the tree. Protecting the tree bark will prevent infections, diseases or insect activity. Watch out for prospective threats that might harm tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to prevent damage and ensure trees are visible at night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that over and over again hits bark at the very same location can cause damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your yard, make certain these do not straight hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches do not get laced.
- Yard equipment: don; t get lawn devices near the tree trunks as this can trigger major damage to the bark.
Trees generally grow well in existing moisture conditions and don’t require any additional watering. Nevertheless, depending upon your regional environment, you may need to water your trees during extended periods of dry spell. If you do need to water trees in the summertime, a periodic deep watering is chosen to a frequent misting. In winter season trees should not need any watering.
We’ve previously written about pruning trees as it’s a crucial part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you know what you are doing, otherwise you can always hire an expert. The main things to keep an eye out for are:.
- Crossing branches: remove 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: remove branches that are low and are vulnerable to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can likewise get rid of low branches for aesthetic purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two methods you can ensure 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 product will decay in the ground and enhance the soil. Ensure your plants can flourish in the shade and that their roots do not take on the tree.
