Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be taken for granted but extreme weather can take its toll. It is very important to keep trees healthy and aim to prevent diseases or weather damage.
One of the very first things you can do is learn more about the trees you want to care for and their specific requirements. If you’re unsure 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 looking into trees, the main things to watch out for are:
- Kind of soil required
- Amount of water required
- Specific sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
When you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 suggestions to keep your trees resistant and healthy.
Safeguard the roots.
Focus on the zone around a tree approximately where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone but this is the location where roots are more delicate. The key is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep soaking up water and oxygen.
Protect the bark.
Think about the bark as an armour that safeguards the tree. Protecting the tree bark will prevent infections, illness or insect activity. Watch out for potential threats that might damage tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Remove lower branches to prevent damage and make sure trees are visible during the night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again hits bark at the same location can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, ensure these don’t straight strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches do not get entwined.
- Yard devices: put on; t get yard devices near to the tree trunks as this can cause severe damage to the bark.
Trees typically grow well in existing wetness conditions and don’t require any extra watering. Nevertheless, depending on your regional environment, you may need to water your trees during extended periods of drought. If you do need to water trees in the summertime, an occasional deep watering is chosen to a frequent 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 work with an expert. The main points to keep an eye 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 assist the tree recover.
Low branches: get rid of 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 2 methods you can make sure that the soil around your tree is abundant in nutrients.
- Usage 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 type of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Make sure your plants can thrive in the shade and that their roots do not take on the tree.
