Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be taken for granted however extreme weather condition can take its toll. It is very important to keep trees healthy and try to avoid diseases or weather condition damage.
Among the first things you can do is learn more about the trees you wish to look after and their particular needs. If you’re uncertain about the kind 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 points to keep an eye out for are:
- Kind of soil needed
- Amount of water needed
- Specific level of sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
When you know more about your trees, follow these 5 ideas to keep your trees durable and healthy.
Secure 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 location where roots are more delicate. The key is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep soaking up water and oxygen.
Protect the bark.
Think about the bark as an armour that safeguards the tree. Securing the tree bark will prevent infections, illness or insect activity. Look out for possible risks that might damage tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to prevent breakage and make sure trees show up at night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that repetitively strikes bark at the very same place can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your yard, make sure these don’t directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches do not get braided.
- Yard devices: don; t get lawn equipment near the tree trunks as this can cause major damage to the bark.
Trees typically thrive well in existing moisture conditions and don’t require any extra watering. Nevertheless, depending upon your regional climate, you might have to water your trees throughout extended periods of dry spell. If you do have to water trees in the summertime, an occasional deep watering is preferred to a regular misting. In winter trees shouldn’t require any watering.
We’ve previously discussed pruning trees as it’s a crucial part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you know what you are doing, otherwise you can always hire an expert. The main points to look out for are:.
- Crossing branches: get rid of the smaller sized branch so the more powerful one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will help the tree recover.
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 certain 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 kind 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 do not compete with the tree.
