Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be taken for approved but extreme weather can take its toll. It’s important to keep trees healthy and aim to avoid illness or weather damage.
One of the first things you can do is find out about the trees you want to take care of and their specific requirements. If you’re uncertain about the type of tree you have, there are lots of resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When researching trees, the main things to look out for are:
- Type of soil needed
- Quantity of water required
- Particular level of sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
Once you know more about your trees, follow these 5 tips to keep your trees durable and healthy.
Protect the roots.
Focus on the zone around a tree approximately 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 taking in water and oxygen.
Protect the bark.
Think of the bark as an armour that safeguards the tree. Protecting the tree bark will prevent infections, illness or insect activity. Keep an eye out for potential risks that could damage tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to avoid breakage and make sure trees show up at night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that repetitively strikes bark at the very same place can cause damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your yard, ensure these don’t straight strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches do not get laced.
- Yard equipment: don; t get lawn devices near to the tree trunks as this can trigger severe damage to the bark.
Trees usually flourish well in existing moisture conditions and do not need any additional watering. Nevertheless, depending on your regional climate, you might have to water your trees during extended periods of drought. If you do have to water trees in the summer season, an occasional deep watering is preferred to a frequent misting. In winter season trees shouldn’t require any watering.
We’ve formerly blogged about pruning trees as it’s an essential part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly hire an expert. The main things to keep an eye out for are:.
- Crossing branches: remove the smaller branch so the stronger one can grow without being harmed.
- Broken and dead branches: a tidy cut will assist the tree heal.
Low branches: remove branches that are low and are susceptible to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also remove low branches for visual 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 yard or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and enhance the soil. Make sure your plants can flourish in the shade and that their roots do not compete with the tree.
