Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can frequently be taken for given but intense weather can take its toll. It’s important to keep trees healthy and try to avoid illness or weather condition damage.
One of the first things you can do is learn about the trees you want to look after and their particular needs. If you’re not sure about the kind of tree you have, there are numerous resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When looking into trees, the main points to watch out for are:
- Type of soil needed
- Quantity of water needed
- Particular level of sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
When you know more about your trees, follow these 5 pointers to keep your trees resistant and healthy.
Protect the roots.
Focus on the zone around a tree as much as where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone but this is the area where roots are more sensitive. 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 of the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Securing the tree bark will prevent infections, illness or insect activity. Keep an eye out for potential dangers that might harm tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to avoid breakage and make sure trees are visible during the night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that repetitively strikes bark at the same location can trigger damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your yard, make certain these don’t directly strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches don’t get entwined.
- Yard equipment: put on; t get yard devices near to the tree trunks as this can cause major damage to the bark.
Trees normally prosper well in existing wetness conditions and don’t need any extra watering. Nevertheless, depending on your regional climate, you may have to water your trees throughout extended periods of drought. If you do need to water trees in the summer season, a periodic deep watering is preferred to a frequent misting. In winter trees should not need any watering.
We’ve formerly blogged about pruning trees as it’s an essential part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly work with an expert. The main points 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 tidy cut will assist the tree heal.
Low branches: get rid of branches that are low and are susceptible to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also eliminate low branches for visual 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 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 material will decay in the ground and enrich the soil. Ensure your plants can prosper in the shade and that their roots don’t compete with the tree.
