Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be considered given but intense weather can take its toll. It is essential to keep trees healthy and aim to prevent illness or weather damage.
Among the first things you can do is discover 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 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:
- Kind of soil needed
- Amount of water needed
- Particular sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
Once you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 ideas to keep your trees resilient 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 sensitive. The secret is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep absorbing water and oxygen.
Safeguard the bark.
Consider the bark as an armour that safeguards the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will avoid infections, diseases or insect activity. Keep an eye out for prospective dangers that could damage tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Remove lower branches to prevent damage and make sure trees are visible during the night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that repetitively hits bark at the same place can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, ensure these don’t straight hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches do not get entwined.
- Yard equipment: put on; t get yard equipment close to the tree trunks as this can cause serious damage to the bark.
Trees generally flourish well in existing wetness conditions and do not need any additional watering. However, depending upon your local climate, you might have to water your trees during extended durations of drought. If you do have to water trees in the summertime, an occasional deep watering is preferred to a frequent misting. In winter season trees shouldn’t 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 exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly hire an expert. The main things to keep an eye out for are:.
- Crossing branches: eliminate the smaller sized branch so the more powerful one can grow without being harmed.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will assist the tree heal.
Low branches: remove branches that are low and are susceptible to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also get rid of low branches for aesthetic functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 ways 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 need 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 don’t take on the tree.
