Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can frequently be considered approved however extreme weather condition can take its toll. It is essential to keep trees healthy and aim to avoid illness or weather damage.
One of the very first things you can do is learn more about the trees you wish to look after and their specific requirements. If you’re not sure about the kind of tree you have, there are numerous resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When investigating trees, the main things to look out for are:
- Type of soil required
- Amount of water required
- Particular sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
When you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 tips to keep your trees durable and healthy.
Protect the roots.
Concentrate on the zone around a tree up to 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 absorbing water and oxygen.
Secure the bark.
Think about the bark as an armour that safeguards 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 tall vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to avoid breakage and ensure trees show up during the night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that repetitively strikes bark at the exact same location can cause damage. If you use sprinklers to water your yard, make sure these do not directly strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches do not get braided.
- Yard devices: put on; t get yard equipment near to the tree trunks as this can cause severe damage to the bark.
Trees usually grow well in existing wetness conditions and don’t require any extra watering. However, depending upon your local climate, you may need to water your trees throughout extended periods of drought. If you do need to water trees in the summertime, a periodic deep watering is chosen to a regular misting. In winter season trees shouldn’t need any watering.
We’ve previously written about pruning trees as it’s a crucial part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can always hire a professional. The main things 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 assist the tree recover.
Low branches: get rid of branches that are low and are susceptible to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can likewise eliminate low branches for visual purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two methods you can ensure 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 turf or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Make certain your plants can thrive in the shade and that their roots don’t take on the tree.
