Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be taken for approved but extreme weather condition can take its toll. It is essential to keep trees healthy and attempt to avoid illness or weather condition damage.
Among the first things you can do is learn about the trees you want to take care of and their specific requirements. If you’re not exactly sure about the kind of tree you have, there are many resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When looking into trees, the main points to keep an eye out for are:
- Type of soil required
- Quantity of water needed
- Specific sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
Once you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 ideas to keep your trees durable and healthy.
Safeguard 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 key 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 of the bark as an armour that safeguards the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will prevent infections, illness or insect activity. Look out for potential risks that could harm tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to prevent damage and make certain trees show up at night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that repetitively hits bark at the exact same location can cause damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your yard, make sure these do not directly strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches do not get laced.
- Lawn devices: put on; t get yard devices near to the tree trunks as this can trigger serious damage to the bark.
Trees generally flourish well in existing moisture conditions and do not need any additional watering. However, depending upon your local environment, you may need to water your trees during extended periods of dry spell. If you do have to water trees in the summertime, an occasional deep watering is preferred to a regular misting. In winter season trees shouldn’t need any watering.
We’ve previously written about pruning trees as it’s an important part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you know what you are doing, otherwise you can always employ an expert. The main points to keep an eye out for are:.
- Crossing branches: eliminate the smaller sized branch so the more powerful one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a tidy cut will assist the tree recover.
Low branches: eliminate branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also remove low branches for aesthetic purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 ways you can make sure 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 lawn or some type of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and enrich the soil. Make sure your plants can prosper in the shade and that their roots do not take on the tree.
