Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be taken for granted but extreme weather condition can take its toll. It is necessary to keep trees healthy and aim to avoid diseases or weather damage.
Among the very first things you can do is find out about the trees you want to take care of and their particular requirements. If you’re not sure about the sort of tree you have, there are numerous resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When looking into trees, the main points to keep an eye out for are:
- Type of soil required
- Quantity of water required
- Specific sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
Once 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 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.
Secure the bark.
Think about the bark as an armour that protects the tree. Securing the tree bark will avoid infections, illness or insect activity. Look out for prospective threats that might damage tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to prevent damage and ensure trees are visible during the night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again strikes bark at the exact same location can trigger damage. If you use 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 correctly so branches don’t get braided.
- Lawn equipment: don; t get lawn devices close to the tree trunks as this can trigger severe damage to the bark.
Trees generally flourish well in existing wetness conditions and do not require any additional watering. Nevertheless, depending on your regional climate, you might need to water your trees throughout extended periods of dry spell. If you do have to water trees in the summer, a periodic deep watering is preferred to a frequent misting. In winter trees should not require any watering.
We’ve previously written about pruning trees as it’s an important part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly hire an expert. The main things to watch 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 heal.
Low branches: remove branches that are low and are susceptible to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can also eliminate low branches for aesthetic purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 methods you can make sure that the soil around your tree is rich 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 yard or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Ensure your plants can grow in the shade and that their roots do not compete with the tree.
