Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be taken for approved however extreme weather can take its toll. It is necessary to keep trees healthy and try to prevent diseases or weather condition damage.
One of the first things you can do is discover the trees you wish to take care of and their particular requirements. If you’re not sure about the kind of tree you have, there are many resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When looking into trees, the main things to keep an eye out for are:
- Kind of soil needed
- Quantity of water required
- Specific sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
When you know more about your trees, follow these 5 ideas to keep your trees resistant and healthy.
Protect the roots.
Concentrate on the zone around a tree approximately where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone but this is the area 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.
Safeguard the bark.
Consider the bark as an armour that protects the tree. Securing the tree bark will prevent infections, diseases or insect activity. Look out for potential threats that might harm tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Remove lower branches to avoid damage and make sure trees are visible in the evening.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that over and over again strikes bark at the same place can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your yard, make certain these don’t directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches do not get entwined.
- Lawn equipment: wear; t get yard devices close to the tree trunks as this can cause major damage to the bark.
Trees normally thrive well in existing wetness conditions and don’t require any additional watering. However, depending on your local environment, you may need to water your trees throughout extended periods of drought. If you do need to water trees in the summer season, an occasional deep watering is chosen to a regular misting. In winter trees shouldn’t need any watering.
We’ve previously discussed pruning trees as it’s an essential part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you know exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can always hire a professional. The main points to watch out for are:.
- Crossing branches: remove the smaller sized branch so the stronger one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a tidy cut will help the tree heal.
Low branches: remove branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also remove low branches for aesthetic purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 methods you can ensure 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 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 don’t compete with the tree.
