Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can frequently be taken for granted but intense weather condition can take its toll. It is essential to keep trees healthy and attempt to prevent diseases or weather condition damage.
One of the first things you can do is learn more about the trees you wish to take care of and their specific requirements. If you’re unsure about the type of tree you have, there are numerous resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When researching trees, the main things to look out for are:

When you know more about your trees, follow these 5 tips to keep your trees durable and healthy.
Safeguard the roots.
Concentrate on the zone around a tree up to 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.
Safeguard the bark.
Think about the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Securing the tree bark will prevent infections, illness or insect activity. Watch out for potential dangers that might harm tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to prevent breakage and make sure trees are visible during the night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that repetitively hits bark at the exact same location can cause damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, ensure these do not straight hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches don’t get laced.
- Lawn equipment: don; t get lawn devices near to the tree trunks as this can trigger severe damage to the bark.
Trees usually prosper well in existing moisture conditions and don’t require any additional watering. However, depending upon your regional climate, you may have to water your trees during extended durations of dry spell. If you do need to water trees in the summer season, an occasional deep watering is chosen to a regular misting. In winter season trees shouldn’t need any watering.
We’ve formerly blogged about pruning trees as it’s an essential part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you know what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly hire an expert. The main things to watch out for are:.
- Crossing branches: remove the smaller sized branch so the stronger one can grow without being harmed.
- Broken and dead branches: a tidy cut will assist the tree recover.
Low branches: eliminate branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can also eliminate 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.
- Usage 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 grass or some type of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Ensure your plants can thrive in the shade and that their roots do not take on the tree.
