Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be taken for given however extreme weather condition can take its toll. It is necessary to keep trees healthy and aim to prevent diseases or weather damage.
One of the very first things you can do is learn more about the trees you want to care for and their specific 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
- Amount of water required
- Specific level of sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
Once you know more about your trees, follow these 5 ideas to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Protect the roots.
Focus on the zone around a tree as much as where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone however 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 absorbing water and oxygen.
Protect the bark.
Think about the bark as an armour that protects the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will avoid infections, illness or insect activity. Look out for possible risks that could harm tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to prevent damage and make sure trees show up during the night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that repetitively hits bark at the very same location can cause damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, make certain these don’t directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches don’t get braided.
- Lawn devices: put on; t get yard devices near to the tree trunks as this can trigger severe damage to the bark.
Trees usually grow well in existing moisture conditions and do not need any additional watering. However, depending upon your local climate, you might have to water your trees throughout extended periods of drought. If you do need to water trees in the summertime, a periodic deep watering is preferred to a frequent misting. In winter trees shouldn’t need any watering.
We’ve formerly blogged about 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 things to keep an eye 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 heal.
Low branches: eliminate branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can also remove low branches for visual functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 ways 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 have to touch the trunk.
- Plant yard or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and enhance the soil. Make certain your plants can flourish in the shade and that their roots do not compete with the tree.
