Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be taken for approved but intense weather condition can take its toll. It is very important to keep trees healthy and attempt to prevent diseases or weather damage.
Among the very first things you can do is find out about the trees you want to look after and their particular needs. If you’re not exactly sure about the type of tree you have, there are numerous resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When researching trees, the main things to look out for are:
- Kind of soil needed
- Amount of water needed
- Particular level of sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
When you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 tips to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Secure the roots.
Focus on the zone around a tree as much as where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone however this is the area where roots are more delicate. The secret is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep absorbing water and oxygen.
Safeguard the bark.
Think of the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Securing the tree bark will avoid infections, diseases or insect activity. Keep an eye out for potential risks that could harm tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to prevent damage and ensure trees are visible in the evening.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again strikes bark at the same place can trigger damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your yard, make sure these do not straight hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches do not get braided.
- Yard equipment: put on; t get yard equipment near the tree trunks as this can trigger major damage to the bark.
Trees normally thrive well in existing wetness conditions and don’t require any extra watering. However, depending upon your regional climate, you might need 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 shouldn’t require any watering.
We’ve formerly 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 always work with a professional. The main points to keep an eye out for are:.
- Crossing branches: get rid of 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 effect). You can also eliminate low branches for visual functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 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 need to touch the trunk.
- Plant yard or some type of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Ensure your plants can thrive in the shade and that their roots do not compete with the tree.
