Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be considered granted but extreme weather condition can take its toll. It is very important to keep trees healthy and try to prevent illness or weather condition damage.
One of the first things you can do is learn about the trees you want to care for and their particular needs. If you’re not exactly sure about the kind 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 points to look out for are:
- Type of soil required
- Amount of water needed
- Particular sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
When you know more about your trees, follow these 5 pointers to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Secure the roots.
Focus 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 delicate. The secret is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep absorbing water and oxygen.
Protect the bark.
Consider the bark as an armour that protects the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will prevent infections, illness or insect activity. Watch out for possible threats that might harm tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to avoid damage and make sure trees are visible at night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that repetitively hits bark at the very same place can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, ensure these don’t straight hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches do not get braided.
- Lawn equipment: don; t get lawn equipment near the tree trunks as this can trigger severe damage to the bark.
Trees normally thrive well in existing moisture conditions and do not need any additional watering. However, depending upon your local environment, you might need to water your trees during extended periods of drought. If you do have to water trees in the summer, a periodic deep watering is chosen to a regular misting. In winter trees should not require 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 understand what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly hire an expert. 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 help the tree recover.
Low branches: remove branches that are low and are susceptible to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can also remove low branches for aesthetic functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two methods you can make sure that the soil around your tree is abundant in nutrients.
- Usage 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 lawn or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and enhance the soil. Make certain your plants can flourish in the shade and that their roots do not compete with the tree.
