Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be considered granted but extreme weather condition can take its toll. It’s important to keep trees healthy and try to prevent diseases or weather damage.
One of the very first things you can do is learn about the trees you wish to care for and their specific needs. If you’re uncertain about the sort of tree you have, there are many resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When investigating trees, the main things to keep an eye out for are:
- Type of soil needed
- Amount of water needed
- Particular sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
When you know more about your trees, follow these 5 tips to keep your trees resistant 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 area 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.
Secure the bark.
Consider the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will prevent infections, diseases or insect activity. Look out for possible threats that could harm tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to avoid damage and ensure trees are visible during the night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again hits bark at the same place can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, make certain these do not straight strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches don’t get entwined.
- Lawn devices: wear; t get yard equipment near to the tree trunks as this can cause serious damage to the bark.
Trees generally grow well in existing moisture conditions and do not require any additional watering. Nevertheless, depending on your local environment, you might need 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 should not need any watering.
We’ve formerly discussed pruning trees as it’s a vital part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can always employ an expert. The main points to look out for are:.
- Crossing branches: get rid of the smaller sized branch so the stronger one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will assist 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 functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two methods 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 have to touch the trunk.
- Plant grass or some type of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and enrich the soil. Make certain your plants can grow in the shade and that their roots don’t compete with the tree.
