Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can frequently be considered given but intense weather can take its toll. It is necessary to keep trees healthy and try to avoid diseases or weather condition damage.
Among the very first things you can do is find out about the trees you want to take care of and their particular needs. If you’re not exactly sure about the kind of tree you have, there are many resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When investigating trees, the main things to watch out for are:
- Type of soil required
- Amount of water needed
- Particular level of sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
Once you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 ideas to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Secure the roots.
Focus 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 delicate. The secret is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep soaking up water and oxygen.
Safeguard the bark.
Think about the bark as an armour that safeguards the tree. Protecting the tree bark will avoid infections, diseases or insect activity. Watch out for potential dangers that could damage tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to prevent damage and ensure trees show up at night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that repetitively hits bark at the same place can cause damage. If you use sprinklers to water your yard, ensure these do not straight hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches do not get laced.
- Yard equipment: don; t get yard equipment near to the tree trunks as this can trigger severe damage to the bark.
Trees usually grow well in existing wetness conditions and don’t need any additional watering. Nevertheless, depending upon your local climate, you might have to water your trees during extended durations of dry spell. If you do need to water trees in the summer season, a periodic deep watering is chosen to a regular misting. In winter trees should not require any watering.
We’ve previously written about pruning trees as it’s an important part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you know what you are doing, otherwise you can always work with an expert. The main points to keep an eye out for are:.
- Crossing branches: get rid of the smaller sized branch so the more powerful one can grow without being harmed.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will help the tree heal.
Low branches: remove branches that are low and are susceptible to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also get rid of low branches for visual purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two methods you can make sure that the soil around your tree is rich in nutrients.
- Usage 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 lawn or some type of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and enhance the soil. Ensure your plants can flourish in the shade and that their roots don’t compete with the tree.
