Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be taken for given but extreme weather can take its toll. It is very important to keep trees healthy and try to prevent illness or weather condition damage.
One of the very first things you can do is discover the trees you wish to look after and their particular requirements. If you’re unsure about the kind of tree you have, there are many resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When researching trees, the main things to watch out for are:
- Kind of soil required
- Quantity of water needed
- Specific sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
When you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 ideas to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Protect the roots.
Focus on the zone around a tree approximately where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone however 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 taking in water and oxygen.
Safeguard the bark.
Think about the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will prevent infections, illness or insect activity. Keep an eye out for prospective dangers that could damage tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to prevent damage and ensure trees show up at night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that repetitively hits bark at the very same place can cause damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, make certain these do not directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches do not get braided.
- Yard equipment: don; t get lawn devices near to the tree trunks as this can trigger severe damage to the bark.
Trees generally thrive well in existing moisture conditions and do not require any extra watering. However, depending on your regional environment, you may have 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 preferred to a frequent misting. In winter trees should not require any watering.
We’ve formerly 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 constantly employ a professional. The main points to watch 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 assist the tree recover.
Low branches: get rid of branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also get rid of low branches for aesthetic functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 methods you can ensure that the soil around your tree is rich in nutrients.
- Use 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 kind of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and enhance the soil. Make certain your plants can grow in the shade and that their roots do not compete with the tree.
