Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can frequently be taken for approved but extreme weather can take its toll. It is necessary to keep trees healthy and aim to avoid illness or weather damage.
One of the first things you can do is learn about the trees you want to take care of and their particular requirements. If you’re not exactly sure about the sort of tree you have, there are many resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When investigating trees, the main points to watch out for are:
- Kind of soil required
- Amount of water required
- Particular level of sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
When you know more about your trees, follow these 5 tips to keep your trees durable and healthy.
Protect the roots.
Concentrate 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 key is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep soaking up water and oxygen.
Protect 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 possible threats that could damage 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 ensure trees are visible in the evening.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that repetitively hits bark at the very same location can cause damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, make sure these do not directly strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches don’t get laced.
- Yard devices: put on; t get lawn equipment near to the tree trunks as this can trigger severe damage to the bark.
Trees typically flourish well in existing moisture conditions and don’t need any extra watering. However, depending on your regional environment, you might have to water your trees during extended periods of dry spell. If you do need to water trees in the summer season, a periodic deep watering is preferred to a regular misting. In winter trees should not need any watering.
We’ve previously written about pruning trees as it’s a crucial part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you know what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly employ an expert. The main points to watch out for are:.
- Crossing branches: eliminate the smaller branch so the stronger one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will help the tree heal.
Low branches: get rid of branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can also remove low branches for visual purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 methods you can make sure that the soil around your tree is rich in nutrients.
- Use mulch. Spread out a layer of mulch around your tree, about 2 to 4 inches thick. The mulch does not need to touch the trunk.
- Plant lawn or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Ensure your plants can flourish in the shade and that their roots do not compete with the tree.
