Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be considered granted but extreme weather can take its toll. It’s important to keep trees healthy and try to avoid illness or weather condition damage.
One of the very first things you can do is find out about the trees you want to take care of and their particular requirements. If you’re not 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 researching trees, the main points to watch out for are:
- Type of soil required
- Quantity of water needed
- Particular sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
As soon as you know more about your trees, follow these 5 pointers to keep your trees resistant and healthy.
Protect the roots.
Concentrate 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 taking in water and oxygen.
Secure the bark.
Consider the bark as an armour that protects the tree. Protecting the tree bark will avoid infections, illness or insect activity. Keep an eye out for prospective risks that might harm tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to avoid damage and make certain trees show up in the evening.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that repetitively strikes bark at the exact same place can trigger damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your yard, make sure these don’t straight strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches do not get entwined.
- Yard equipment: don; t get lawn equipment close to the tree trunks as this can trigger major damage to the bark.
Trees normally flourish well in existing wetness conditions and don’t require any additional watering. Nevertheless, depending on your regional environment, you might have to water your trees during extended durations of dry spell. If you do have to water trees in the summer season, an occasional deep watering is preferred to a regular misting. In winter season trees should not require any watering.
We’ve formerly written about pruning trees as it’s an essential part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you know what you are doing, otherwise you can always work with an expert. The main things to look out for are:.
- Crossing branches: get rid of the smaller branch so the stronger one can grow without being harmed.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will help the tree recover.
Low branches: eliminate branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also get rid of low branches for aesthetic purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 methods you can ensure that the soil around your tree is rich in nutrients.
- Use 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 grass or some type of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and enrich the soil. Ensure your plants can prosper in the shade and that their roots do not compete with the tree.
