Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be taken for granted however intense weather condition can take its toll. It is very important to keep trees healthy and aim to prevent illness or weather damage.
Among the very first things you can do is learn about the trees you want to take care of and their particular needs. If you’re not exactly sure about the kind 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:
- Kind of soil required
- Amount of water required
- Particular sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
When you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 pointers to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Protect the roots.
Concentrate on the zone around a tree up to where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone but this is the area where roots are more delicate. The key is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep taking in water and oxygen.
Protect the bark.
Consider the bark as an armour that safeguards the tree. Protecting the tree bark will prevent infections, diseases or insect activity. Keep an eye out for possible risks that could damage tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to avoid breakage and make sure trees show up in the evening.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that over and over again hits bark at the very same location can cause damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your lawn, ensure these do not directly strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches do not get braided.
- Lawn equipment: don; t get yard devices near the tree trunks as this can trigger serious damage to the bark.
Trees normally prosper well in existing moisture conditions and don’t require any extra watering. Nevertheless, depending on your regional environment, you might have to water your trees during extended periods of drought. If you do have to water trees in the summer, an occasional deep watering is chosen to a regular misting. In winter trees shouldn’t require any watering.
We’ve previously blogged about pruning trees as it’s an essential part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can always employ a professional. The main things to keep an eye out for are:.
- Crossing branches: get rid of the smaller branch so the stronger one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will assist the tree recover.
Low branches: eliminate branches that are low and are vulnerable to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also eliminate low branches for aesthetic purposes.
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 need to touch the trunk.
- Plant grass or some type of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Make sure your plants can grow in the shade and that their roots don’t take on the tree.
