Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be taken for approved however intense weather can take its toll. It is necessary to keep trees healthy and aim to prevent diseases or weather condition damage.
One of the first things you can do is find out about the trees you want to care for and their particular requirements. If you’re unsure 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 researching trees, the main points to look out for are:
- Type of soil needed
- Quantity of water needed
- Specific sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
Once you know more about your trees, follow these 5 pointers to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Safeguard the roots.
Concentrate on the zone around a tree approximately where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone however this is the location 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 secures the tree. Protecting the tree bark will avoid infections, diseases or insect activity. Watch out for potential dangers that might damage tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to prevent damage and make sure trees are visible during the night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that over and over again strikes bark at the same location can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your yard, make sure these don’t directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches don’t get laced.
- Yard devices: wear; t get yard devices near the tree trunks as this can trigger severe damage to the bark.
Trees typically thrive well in existing wetness conditions and do not require any additional watering. However, depending upon your regional climate, you may need to water your trees throughout extended periods of drought. If you do have to water trees in the summer, an occasional deep watering is chosen to a frequent misting. In winter season trees shouldn’t need any watering.
We’ve previously discussed pruning trees as it’s an important part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can always employ an expert. The main things 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 tidy cut will help the tree recover.
Low branches: get rid of branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can likewise eliminate low branches for aesthetic purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two 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 yard or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Make certain your plants can thrive in the shade and that their roots do not take on the tree.
