Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be taken for given however intense weather condition can take its toll. It is essential to keep trees healthy and aim to prevent illness or weather condition damage.
Among the very first things you can do is learn about the trees you wish to take care of and their particular needs. If you’re uncertain about the kind of tree you have, there are many resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When looking into trees, the main things to watch out for are:
- Type of soil required
- Amount of water needed
- Particular sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
Once you know more about your trees, follow these 5 suggestions to keep your trees resistant and healthy.
Protect 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 location 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 about the bark as an armour that protects the tree. Securing the tree bark will prevent infections, diseases or insect activity. Look out for potential risks that might damage tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to avoid damage and make sure trees show up during the night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again strikes bark at the same place can cause damage. If you use sprinklers to water your yard, ensure these do not directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches don’t get braided.
- Yard devices: wear; t get lawn equipment close to the tree trunks as this can trigger major damage to the bark.
Trees normally grow well in existing moisture conditions and don’t need any extra watering. However, depending on your local 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, a periodic deep watering is chosen to a regular misting. In winter season trees shouldn’t require any watering.
We’ve previously blogged about pruning trees as it’s a crucial part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you know exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly work with a professional. The main things to keep an eye out for are:.
- Crossing branches: get rid of the smaller branch so the more powerful one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will assist the tree recover.
Low branches: remove branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can likewise eliminate low branches for aesthetic purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two methods you can make sure that the soil around your tree is abundant in nutrients.
- Use 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 yard or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Make certain your plants can grow in the shade and that their roots do not take on the tree.
