Trees need proper care to thrive and look their best. Trees are beneficial because not only do they help the environment by reducing pollution, but they also improve the value of your home and cut utility costs. Tree care and maintenance is essential to upholding the beauty and value of your property.
The three essential tasks of Tree Maintenance include:
- Protecting the Roots: As part of tree maintenance, the first step is to establish where your tree is located with regards to other plants and other structure in order to give the roots of the tree plenty of space to grow. You may have to seek help from a professional arborist who can help you determine the length of the roots and tell you where to water and where to avoid doing construction.
- Watering effectively: Develop a watering schedule depending on the type of tree, climate and rainfall in your area. An irrigation system can be installed for watering the trees or a simple hose can be used for this purpose.
- Proper Pruning: While winter is an ideal time for tree trimming, different trees need to be pruned at different times. It is important to use clean and sharp tools during pruning and even more important to sanitize the tools between pruning different trees.
Holistic tree care and maintenance improve the vitality of trees, helping them withstand all weather conditions and any persistent pests or disease. Preventative maintenance is hence extremely critical to protecting trees from decline and protecting your property from potential damage.
