Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be considered approved but intense weather can take its toll. It is essential to keep trees healthy and aim to prevent illness or weather damage.
One of the first things you can do is learn more about the trees you wish to look after 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 looking into trees, the main things to keep an eye out for are:
- Kind of soil required
- Amount of water needed
- Particular sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
As soon as you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 suggestions to keep your trees resistant and healthy.
Secure the roots.
Focus 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 sensitive. The secret is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep taking in water and oxygen.
Secure the bark.
Think about the bark as an armour that protects the tree. Securing the tree bark will prevent infections, illness or insect activity. Look out for prospective threats that could harm tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to avoid breakage and ensure trees are visible during the night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that repetitively strikes bark at the same location can trigger damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your lawn, make certain these do not directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches do not get laced.
- Yard devices: put on; t get yard equipment close to the tree trunks as this can cause serious damage to the bark.
Trees generally grow well in existing moisture conditions and don’t need any extra watering. However, depending upon your local environment, you might need to water your trees throughout extended durations of drought. If you do need to water trees in the summertime, an occasional deep watering is chosen to a frequent misting. In winter season trees should not require any watering.
We’ve previously written about pruning trees as it’s a vital 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 points to keep an eye out for are:.
- Crossing branches: eliminate the smaller branch so the more powerful one can grow without being harmed.
- Broken and dead branches: a tidy cut will help the tree heal.
Low branches: eliminate branches that are low and are susceptible to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can likewise remove low branches for visual functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two methods you can make certain 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 kind of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Make sure your plants can thrive in the shade and that their roots do not compete with the tree.
