Trees are awesome, they add beauty and depth to any lawn, but require delicate care.
It may seem like a lot of work at the time, but if you let the limbs grow without maintenance you’ll end up with a mess. Check out these easy tree expert tips on keeping your tree’s clean and proper.
Choose the right area for growth
Each time you plant a tree, keep in mind the roots. For your trees to grow into their natural size, they need to have enough space.
This means, if you are planning on planting a lot of trees, you need to space them out. Depending on the kind of tree, this could mean separating them five feet apart, or even ten. We suggest talking with your tree provider to get the exact amount.
Pick the right soil and mulch
The soil you choose is the food your tree will be eating forever. The soil you need always depends on which kind of tree you are feeding, but the safest route for any tree is organic soil.
Organic soil has no preservatives or chemicals so the preservation of your tree will be natural and longer.
Provide regular watering
The best and most easy way to water your trees is with simple rain! The summers are full of rain showers, but even that’s not enough. Choose a watering schedule and stick to it.
If your tree requires water three times a week but there’s no sign of rain, don’t be afraid to go out there and give it a drink.
Prop up young and fragile trees
Some tree’s need a little help. If one of your younglings is looking on the a little sad, there are usually ways to save it.
You can use support stakes to help it grow strong. Simply take the stake, dig the end of it into the ground, and tie the upper part to your tree. This will act as a crutch and allow the tree to grow tall and strong, so when it’s ready you can remove the stake.
Once you’ve established the roots for a strong adult tree, there is need for regular maintenance to keep growing successfully. Check out Maryville Tree Service Company for more information about tree care and removal services
