Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be taken for approved but extreme weather can take its toll. It’s important to keep trees healthy and aim to prevent illness or weather condition damage.
One of the very first things you can do is discover the trees you want to look after and their specific requirements. If you’re not exactly sure about the kind of tree you have, there are many resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When researching trees, the main things to look out for are:
- Type of soil needed
- Amount of water needed
- Specific sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
When you know more about your trees, follow these 5 suggestions to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Secure 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 soaking up water and oxygen.
Protect the bark.
Think about the bark as an armour that protects the tree. Protecting the tree bark will prevent infections, diseases or insect activity. Keep an eye out for prospective risks that might damage tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to avoid damage and make certain trees are visible during the night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that over and over again hits bark at the very same place can trigger damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your yard, make certain these don’t directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches don’t get entwined.
- Yard equipment: put on; t get lawn devices near the tree trunks as this can trigger major damage to the bark.
Trees typically prosper well in existing wetness conditions and don’t require any additional watering. Nevertheless, depending upon your regional climate, you may need to water your trees throughout extended periods of drought. If you do need to water trees in the summertime, a periodic deep watering is chosen to a frequent misting. In winter season trees should not need any watering.
We’ve previously written about pruning trees as it’s an essential part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand what you are doing, otherwise you can always employ a professional. The main points to watch out for are:.
- Crossing branches: remove 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: remove branches that are low and are susceptible to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also eliminate low branches for visual functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 ways you can make certain 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 turf or some type of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and enhance the soil. Ensure your plants can grow in the shade and that their roots do not take on the tree.
