Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can frequently be taken for given but extreme weather can take its toll. It’s important to keep trees healthy and attempt to avoid diseases or weather damage.
One of the very first things you can do is learn more about the trees you want to take care of and their specific requirements. If you’re unsure about the kind of tree you have, there are lots of resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When looking into trees, the main things to keep an eye out for are:
- Kind of soil required
- Quantity of water required
- Particular sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
When you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 ideas to keep your trees resistant and healthy.
Protect the roots.
Concentrate 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 sensitive. The secret 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 of the bark as an armour that protects the tree. Protecting the tree bark will avoid infections, diseases or insect activity. Look out for possible dangers that could harm tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to avoid damage and make certain trees are visible during the night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that repetitively strikes bark at the very same place can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, ensure these do not straight strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches do not get entwined.
- Yard devices: don; t get yard devices near the tree trunks as this can trigger major damage to the bark.
Trees typically thrive well in existing moisture conditions and do not need any extra watering. Nevertheless, depending on your regional climate, you might have 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 trees shouldn’t need any watering.
We’ve formerly discussed pruning trees as it’s an essential part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly employ an expert. The main points to look out for are:.
- Crossing branches: get rid of the smaller 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 prone to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can also eliminate low branches for aesthetic functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two methods you can make sure 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 yard or some type of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and enrich the soil. Make sure your plants can flourish in the shade and that their roots do not compete with the tree.
