Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be considered granted but intense weather can take its toll. It is very important to keep trees healthy and aim to prevent illness or weather condition damage.
Among the very first things you can do is find out about the trees you want to look after and their particular requirements. If you’re not sure about the sort of tree you have, there are lots of resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When investigating trees, the main points to keep an eye out for are:
- Type of soil required
- Quantity of water needed
- Specific sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
As soon as you know more about your trees, follow these 5 suggestions to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Safeguard the roots.
Concentrate 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 sensitive. The key 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 protects the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will prevent infections, diseases or insect activity. Look out for possible risks that might damage tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to prevent breakage and ensure trees show up at night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that repetitively hits bark at the same location can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, make sure these don’t straight strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches do not get braided.
- Lawn devices: don; t get lawn devices near to the tree trunks as this can cause serious damage to the bark.
Trees usually prosper well in existing moisture conditions and do not need any extra watering. However, depending upon your regional climate, you may have to water your trees during extended durations of dry spell. If you do need to water trees in the summer, a periodic deep watering is chosen to a frequent misting. In winter trees shouldn’t need any watering.
We’ve formerly blogged about pruning trees as it’s a vital 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 keep an eye out for are:.
- Crossing branches: remove the smaller branch so the more powerful 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 vulnerable to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can also remove low branches for aesthetic functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two ways 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 have to touch the trunk.
- Plant yard or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and enhance the soil. Make certain your plants can grow in the shade and that their roots don’t take on the tree.
