Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be taken for approved but extreme weather condition can take its toll. It’s important to keep trees healthy and try to prevent diseases or weather damage.
One of the first things you can do is find out about the trees you want 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 help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When researching trees, the main things to keep an eye out for are:
- Type of soil needed
- Quantity of water required
- Specific sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
When you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 suggestions to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Protect the roots.
Focus on the zone around a tree approximately where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone but 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 absorbing water and oxygen.
Safeguard the bark.
Think of the bark as an armour that protects the tree. Protecting the tree bark will avoid infections, diseases or insect activity. Watch out for possible dangers that could damage tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to prevent breakage and make certain trees are visible in the evening.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again hits bark at the very same location can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, ensure these don’t directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches don’t get entwined.
- Yard devices: put on; t get lawn devices near to the tree trunks as this can cause serious damage to the bark.
Trees generally thrive well in existing moisture conditions and do not require any additional watering. Nevertheless, depending on your regional environment, you may need to water your trees during extended durations of drought. If you do need to water trees in the summer season, an occasional deep watering is preferred to a frequent misting. In winter season trees should not require any watering.
We’ve previously 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 employ an expert. The main things to look out for are:.
- Crossing branches: get rid of the smaller sized branch so the stronger one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will assist the tree recover.
Low branches: get rid of 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 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 need to touch the trunk.
- Plant turf or some type of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and enrich the soil. Ensure your plants can flourish in the shade and that their roots don’t take on the tree.
