Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can frequently be considered given but intense weather can take its toll. It is essential to keep trees healthy and try to avoid illness or weather condition damage.
One of the very first things you can do is find out about the trees you wish to take care of and their particular needs. If you’re uncertain about the sort of tree you have, there are many resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When looking into trees, the main things to watch out for are:
- Kind of soil needed
- Quantity of water needed
- Particular sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
Once you know more about your trees, follow these 5 suggestions to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Protect the roots.
Focus on the zone around a tree up to where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone however this is the area where roots are more sensitive. The key is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep taking in water and oxygen.
Protect the bark.
Think of the bark as an armour that safeguards the tree. Securing the tree bark will avoid infections, illness or insect activity. Watch out for possible threats that might harm tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Remove lower branches to avoid breakage and ensure trees show up in the evening.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again strikes bark at the same location can trigger damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your yard, make certain these do not straight hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches don’t get braided.
- Lawn equipment: don; t get lawn equipment close to the tree trunks as this can cause major damage to the bark.
Trees generally flourish well in existing wetness conditions and do not need any extra watering. Nevertheless, depending upon your local environment, you might have to water your trees throughout extended periods of drought. If you do need to water trees in the summertime, an occasional deep watering is preferred to a regular misting. In winter season trees shouldn’t require any watering.
We’ve previously written about pruning trees as it’s a vital part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand what you are doing, otherwise you can always hire a professional. The main things to look 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 clean cut will assist the tree recover.
Low branches: eliminate branches that are low and are vulnerable to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can also remove low branches for aesthetic purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 ways you can ensure that the soil around your tree is rich 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 lawn or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Ensure your plants can grow in the shade and that their roots don’t compete with the tree.
