Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can frequently be considered granted but extreme weather can take its toll. It is necessary to keep trees healthy and aim 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 specific requirements. If you’re not sure about the sort of tree you have, there are many resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When investigating trees, the main things to watch out for are:
- Type of soil needed
- Quantity of water needed
- Specific sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
As soon as you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 pointers to keep your trees resistant and healthy.
Safeguard the roots.
Concentrate on the zone around a tree approximately where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone but this is the location where roots are more delicate. The key is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep absorbing water and oxygen.
Protect the bark.
Consider the bark as an armour that protects the tree. Protecting the tree bark will prevent infections, illness or insect activity. Look out for potential dangers that might damage tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Remove lower branches to prevent damage and make certain trees show up in the evening.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that over and over again strikes bark at the exact same place can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your yard, make certain these don’t straight hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches do not get laced.
- Yard equipment: don; t get yard equipment near the tree trunks as this can trigger major damage to the bark.
Trees usually prosper well in existing moisture conditions and do not require any extra watering. Nevertheless, depending on your local climate, you may need to water your trees throughout extended periods 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 shouldn’t require any watering.
We’ve formerly discussed pruning trees as it’s a crucial part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you know what you are doing, otherwise you can always hire a professional. The main points to keep an eye out for are:.
- Crossing branches: remove the smaller branch so the stronger one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will assist the tree heal.
Low branches: get rid of branches that are low and are vulnerable to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also get rid of low branches for aesthetic purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two ways you can make certain that the soil around your tree is abundant in nutrients.
- Usage 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 grass or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and enhance the soil. Make certain your plants can flourish in the shade and that their roots don’t take on the tree.
