There’s no denying that trees can enhance any property by providing shade, beauty, and tranquility. If you’re reading this right now, that probably means you have a few trees to take care of, whether they’re at your home or another location. While trees may be low maintenance, there are a few things you should know so that you can make sure they’re in the best health they can be. At Big Timber Tree Service, LLC, we know a thing or two about taking care of trees. Today, we’re going to share some tree care tips and techniques to help keep your tree(s) healthy:
1. Learn the species you have – If you don’t already know, it’s a good idea to learn what species you have. You can either do your own research online or consult an expert (like us!). This helps you understand their characteristics, which, in turn, helps you better understand how to take care of each one.
2. Protect your tree’s roots with mulch – When mulch is used properly, it provides a number of benefits for your trees. It not only protects their roots, but it also helps keep weed growth under control, reduces soil erosion, regulates soil temperature through insulation, and releases nutrients into the soil.
3. Get regular inspections – By scheduling annual inspections with a certified arborist, you can catch any weaknesses or health issues before they out of hand. This can also help protect your property from future storm damage that might’ve been caused by falling trees or broken branches.
4. Give them breathing room – As we previously stated, trees are low maintenance, and they do not need humans to survive and grow. Aside from the occasional inspection and tree trimming, you can leave them alone and give them some breathing room. Also, try not to build anything too close to them because it can damage their roots and growth space.
If you follow these tips, you can keep the trees on your property beautiful and healthy.
