Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be considered given however intense weather condition can take its toll. It is essential to keep trees healthy and aim to prevent diseases or weather condition damage.
One of the very first things you can do is find out 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 lots of resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When investigating trees, the main points to watch out for are:
- Kind of soil needed
- Quantity of water required
- Specific level of sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
Once 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 but this is the location where roots are more delicate. The secret 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 secures the tree. Protecting the tree bark will avoid infections, diseases or insect activity. Look out for potential 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 show up in the evening.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that repetitively hits bark at the exact same location can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, make sure 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.
- Yard equipment: put on; t get yard devices close to the tree trunks as this can cause serious damage to the bark.
Trees usually prosper well in existing moisture conditions and don’t require any extra watering. Nevertheless, depending upon your regional climate, you may have to water your trees during 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 written about pruning trees as it’s a crucial part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you know exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly employ an expert. The main things to keep an eye 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 vulnerable to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also get rid of low branches for aesthetic functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two ways you can make sure that the soil around your tree is abundant in nutrients.
- Usage 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 turf or some type of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and enrich the soil. Make certain your plants can flourish in the shade and that their roots do not compete with the tree.
