Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can frequently be taken for given but intense weather condition can take its toll. It’s important to keep trees healthy and attempt to avoid diseases or weather damage.
Among the very first things you can do is discover the trees you wish to care for and their particular needs. If you’re uncertain about the sort of tree you have, there are many resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When looking into trees, the main points to watch out for are:
- Kind of soil required
- Amount of water needed
- Particular sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
When you know more about your trees, follow these 5 suggestions to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Secure 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 area where roots are more sensitive. The key is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep taking in water and oxygen.
Secure the bark.
Think about the bark as an armour that safeguards the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will avoid infections, illness or insect activity. Keep an eye out for potential risks that might harm tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to prevent breakage and ensure trees show up at night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that repetitively 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 against each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches don’t get entwined.
- Lawn equipment: put on; t get lawn equipment near to the tree trunks as this can cause severe damage to the bark.
Trees normally flourish well in existing wetness conditions and don’t need any additional watering. However, depending upon your local environment, you might have to water your trees during extended periods of dry spell. If you do have to water trees in the summertime, an occasional deep watering is chosen to a regular misting. In winter trees shouldn’t need any watering.
We’ve previously written about 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 a professional. The main points to look out for are:.
- Crossing branches: eliminate the smaller sized branch so the more powerful one can grow without being harmed.
- Broken and dead branches: a tidy 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 also remove low branches for visual functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two methods you can make certain 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 type of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Ensure your plants can flourish in the shade and that their roots do not compete with the tree.
