Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can frequently be taken for approved however intense weather can take its toll. It is essential to keep trees healthy and aim to avoid illness or weather damage.
One of the first things you can do is learn more about the trees you wish to take care of and their specific needs. 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:
- Kind of soil needed
- Amount of water needed
- Specific sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
As soon as you know more about your trees, follow these 5 pointers to keep your trees resistant and healthy.
Safeguard the roots.
Concentrate 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 secret is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep absorbing water and oxygen.
Protect the bark.
Think about the bark as an armour that safeguards the tree. Securing the tree bark will prevent infections, illness or insect activity. Watch out for potential risks that could harm tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to prevent breakage and ensure trees are visible during the night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that over and over again strikes bark at the very same location can trigger damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your yard, ensure these do not directly strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches do not get braided.
- Lawn equipment: don; t get lawn equipment close to the tree trunks as this can trigger severe damage to the bark.
Trees normally flourish well in existing moisture conditions and do not require any extra watering. Nevertheless, depending on your local climate, you might need to water your trees throughout extended periods of dry spell. If you do need to water trees in the summer, an occasional deep watering is preferred to a regular misting. In winter season trees should not require any watering.
We’ve formerly blogged about pruning trees as it’s a vital part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you know what you are doing, otherwise you can always work with an expert. The main points to watch out for are:.
- Crossing branches: remove the smaller branch so the stronger one can grow without being harmed.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will help the tree heal.
Low branches: get rid of branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can likewise 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 have to touch the trunk.
- Plant turf or some type of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and enrich the soil. Make sure your plants can thrive in the shade and that their roots don’t compete with the tree.
