Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be considered granted however intense weather can take its toll. It is essential to keep trees healthy and try to prevent illness or weather condition damage.
Among the first things you can do is find out about the trees you wish to take care of and their specific needs. If you’re not exactly sure about the type of tree you have, there are lots of resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When investigating trees, the main things to keep an eye out for are:
- Kind of soil needed
- Amount of water needed
- Specific level of sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
When you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 suggestions to keep your trees durable and healthy.
Secure the roots.
Focus on the zone around a tree approximately where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone however 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 absorbing water and oxygen.
Safeguard the bark.
Think about the bark as an armour that safeguards the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will avoid infections, diseases or insect activity. Watch out for potential threats that could damage 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 repetitively strikes bark at the same place can cause damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your lawn, make sure these don’t directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches don’t get entwined.
- Yard devices: don; t get lawn equipment close to the tree trunks as this can cause major damage to the bark.
Trees normally flourish well in existing moisture conditions and do not need any additional watering. However, depending on your local environment, you may have to water your trees throughout 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 trees should not need any watering.
We’ve formerly discussed pruning trees as it’s an essential part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly work with a professional. The main points to keep an eye 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 heal.
Low branches: eliminate branches that are low and are vulnerable to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can also get rid of low branches for aesthetic functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 ways 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 yard 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.
