Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can frequently be taken for approved but intense weather can take its toll. It is very important to keep trees healthy and try to avoid illness or weather damage.
One of the first things you can do is learn more about the trees you wish to look after and their particular needs. If you’re unsure about the type of tree you have, there are numerous resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When investigating trees, the main points to watch out for are:
- Type of soil needed
- Amount of water needed
- Specific level of sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
When you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 tips to keep your trees durable and healthy.
Secure the roots.
Concentrate 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 sensitive. The secret is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep soaking up water and oxygen.
Secure the bark.
Consider the bark as an armour that protects the tree. Protecting the tree bark will avoid infections, diseases or insect activity. Look out for prospective risks that could damage tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to prevent breakage and make certain trees are visible at night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that over and over again strikes bark at the same location can cause damage. If you use sprinklers to water your yard, make sure these do not directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches don’t get braided.
- Lawn devices: don; t get lawn equipment near the tree trunks as this can trigger severe damage to the bark.
Trees generally flourish well in existing wetness conditions and do not need any extra watering. However, depending upon your regional environment, you might need to water your trees throughout extended periods of drought. If you do have to water trees in the summer season, an occasional deep watering is chosen to a regular misting. In winter season trees should not need any watering.
We’ve previously written about pruning trees as it’s an important part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can always work with a professional. The main things to watch out for are:.
- Crossing branches: remove the smaller sized branch so the stronger 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 susceptible to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also remove low branches for visual purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two ways you can ensure that the soil around your tree is rich 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 turf or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and enrich the soil. Ensure your plants can prosper in the shade and that their roots don’t take on the tree.
