Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be taken for given however extreme weather can take its toll. It’s important to keep trees healthy and try to prevent diseases or weather damage.
One of the first things you can do is discover the trees you want to take care of and their particular requirements. If you’re unsure about the kind of tree you have, there are numerous resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When investigating trees, the main things to watch out for are:
- Type of soil needed
- Quantity of water needed
- Particular level of sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
As soon as you know 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 delicate. The secret is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep taking in water and oxygen.
Secure the bark.
Consider the bark as an armour that safeguards the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will prevent infections, illness or insect activity. Keep an eye out for potential threats that could damage tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to prevent breakage and ensure trees show up during the night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that over and over again hits bark at the very same location can cause damage. If you utilize 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 properly so branches do not get entwined.
- Yard devices: put on; t get yard devices near the tree trunks as this can trigger serious damage to the bark.
Trees typically thrive well in existing wetness conditions and don’t need any extra watering. However, depending on your regional environment, you may need to water your trees during extended periods of dry spell. If you do have to water trees in the summer season, a periodic deep watering is preferred to a frequent misting. In winter trees shouldn’t need any watering.
We’ve formerly discussed pruning trees as it’s a vital part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you know exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can always hire an expert. The main things to look out for are:.
- Crossing branches: get rid of the smaller sized 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 visual purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two ways you can make certain that the soil around your tree is abundant 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 lawn or some type of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and enhance the soil. Ensure your plants can thrive in the shade and that their roots don’t compete with the tree.
