How to Care Your Trees and Beauty Your Property
The beautiful green cover in you residential or commercial property is a real dream come true. The long and strong trees in your garden make the heads turn for sure, and people always adore your garden! But maintaining these trees in good shape is not as easy as it seems and the tree care and maintenance are worthy of praise for sure. Whatever you do to your tree in its first few years of life will affect its shape, strength, and even its life span. Following the below-mentioned steps will make sure tree gets on the correct foot and keep it healthy throughout its life.
Planting New Trees
The perfect time to plant new trees and shrubs is during the dormant period. Schedule your new tree planting drive just before buds appear in the early spring or after leaves drop in late autumn. Under cool conditions plants have a chance to establish roots before the rain, and warmer temperatures promote top growth. Find out the characteristics of the plant species, and choose a location with the size of the fully grown tree in mind. Consult a certified and professional arborist beforehand for recommendations and post-planting care.
Shrub pruning is ideally performed between late spring and end of the summer, but the best time is when they start to look untidy. Flowering shrubs are the usual exception. Prune them quickly after blooming, but before buds set. Prune shrubs only where there is an exact reason. Thin out the oldest branches, reduce any tall, leggy stems and remove dead wood. Shear shrubs to create a hedge or sculptured form, but not if you prefer a natural look because shearing can cause dense branch tip growth.
Tree care benefits to protect your house value and maximize the ROI , i.e. return on investment. A Money Magazine study ranks the 100% to 200% recovery value of landscaping first among home improvements. Regular inspections and consistent maintenance that addresses tree health, safety, and curb appeal can increase property value too. Clemson University researchers found that homes with “excellent” landscapes can expect a 6% to 7% higher sale price. Preventative tree care is also less costly than therapeutic treatments for fully developed problems.
Finding the balance between the results you desire and environmental sensibility can be the most challenging aspect of tree and lawn care. Make sure you know the kind of materials currently used for your residential or commercial property and how they are applied. Blanket treatments using traditional materials are not nearly as eco-friendly as 100% organic and hybrid services that target specific problems as needed. Ask questions about the availability and effectiveness of green alternatives to find the perfect fit for your preferences.
Early planning is crucial to protect feature trees from permanent or fatal construction injuries. Use fencing to prevent equipment from breaking branches, tearing bark, wounding trunks and compacting the soil. Ideally, allow one foot of space from the trunk for each inch of its diameter. To smartly preserve the tree root system health and stability, route utilities as far away from trees as possible and air space under root zones rather than digging them. Make sure vital roots are identified and not severed during trenching.
Trees, like people, require essential nutrients to survive and function. In suburban landscapes, the soil conditions fluctuate widely and are usually compromised by low nutrient supplies, compaction and insufficient room for roots. An arborist or local tree care facility can test your soil for nutrient content to help determine how much, what type and where to best apply fertilizer if needed. Fertilizing helps replenish nutrients that assist trees and shrubs in sustaining good health throughout the year.
