Ways to Maintain Healthy Trees beside Pruning

Tree PruningEffective Watering

Well-established mature trees will probably flourish in existing moisture and soil conditions. However, an extended drought could destroy them, depending on the soil conditions, species, and local climate. Consequently, it’s important you maintain your trees’ overall health so they’ll be more resilient once a stressful drought comes.

Protect the bark

Your tree’s bark is like a living armor that protects it. Damaging it makes it easy for bacterial or fungal infections to arise and harm your tree by internal rotting. Sources of bark damage include lawn equipment, rubbing branches, and vehicles.

The Different Kinds of Pruning

Crown Thinning

It entails the selective elimination of branches throughout the crown to avoid changing the crown’s shape considerably. This method enhances air circulation and light penetration throughout the crown. It’s imperative to work throughout the tree’s crown, including the external edges.

Remember, the elimination of too many branches from the crown’s center could lead to a tree with poor structure. Moreover, it could lead to long, thin branches with minimal foliage in the lower areas.

Crown Lifting

This involves the removal of lower branches in the tree’s crown. This frequently happens to offer clearance, over roads or paths for instance, or at times to permit additional light to pass under the crown. This method frequently has a restricted impact on a tree’s amenity because it doesn’t alter the more noticeable parts of the tree’s crown.

Conversely, lower branches are usually larger, making the wounds bigger; this could affect the tree’s health adversely.

Crown Cleaning

This method comprises the selective removal of dying, dead, or diseased branches from the tree’s crown. As your tree develops, you’ll occasionally find water sprouts and defective branches in the crown. If you don’t remove these in a timely way, the condition might worsen and affect the tree’s overall health.
