Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can frequently be taken for granted but extreme weather can take its toll. It is essential to keep trees healthy and try to avoid illness or weather damage.
Among the very first things you can do is find out about the trees you wish to care for and their specific requirements. If you’re unsure about the sort of tree you have, there are many resources online to assist 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 required
- Quantity of water needed
- Specific level of sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
Once you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 suggestions to keep your trees durable and healthy.
Secure 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 area 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.
Secure the bark.
Think about the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Securing the tree bark will prevent infections, illness or insect activity. Look out for potential dangers that could damage tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to prevent breakage and ensure trees are visible in the evening.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that repetitively hits bark at the very same location can trigger damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your lawn, make sure these do not directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches do not get laced.
- Lawn devices: put on; t get lawn devices close to the tree trunks as this can trigger major damage to the bark.
Trees usually grow well in existing moisture conditions and don’t need any additional watering. However, depending on your regional environment, you might have to water your trees throughout extended durations of dry spell. If you do have to water trees in the summer season, an occasional deep watering is chosen to a frequent misting. In winter season trees shouldn’t require any watering.
We’ve previously blogged about pruning trees as it’s a vital part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you know exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can always work with an expert. The main things to look out for are:.
- Crossing branches: remove the smaller branch so the more powerful one can grow without being harmed.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will assist the tree recover.
Low branches: get rid of branches that are low and are susceptible to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can likewise remove low branches for visual purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 methods you can make sure that the soil around your tree is abundant in nutrients.
- Use mulch. Spread out a layer of mulch around your tree, about 2 to 4 inches thick. The mulch does not have to touch the trunk.
- Plant grass or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and enrich the soil. Make sure your plants can grow in the shade and that their roots don’t compete with the tree.
