How to Keep Your Trees Healthy This Summer

  • Each tree has its own needs when it comes to moisture.
  • Some trees may need deeply moist air to thrive at their best, while others may need the opposite.
  • Some trees are okay in windy areas, while some are only okay in forested areas where they are covered from the wind by other plants.

Trees are beautiful living things that people grow and cherish for their beauty. You must be mindful of your tree’s health this summer as you take care of it. Here are some things to think about as you take care of your tree this summer.

Water Them Appropriately

A lot of people make the mistake of thinking that trees are completely okay with the pre-existing moisture conditions. Just because a tree is capable of existing in your backyard and in your climate, that does not mean that it is automatically okay with every single condition that already exists in the environment.

Each tree has its own needs when it comes to moisture. Read up on the moisture conditions that your tree needs. Some trees may need a lot of water while others may need a minimal amount of water or no water, at all. Just because a tree is capable of existing in your backyard and in your climate, that does not mean that it is automatically okay with every single condition that already exists in the environment.

Air Moisture

Many people may not consider the fact that there is moisture in the air, and the level of moisture in the air can affect the health of the tree. Some trees may need deeply moist air to thrive at their best, while others may need the opposite. Take this into account because there may be some sort of treatment that you have to give to the tree to accentuate or take away air moisture.

Maintain the Tree

Actively observe the tree and give it checkups. Again, just because it is existing in your yard, that does not mean that it is automatically healthy. Check every part of the tree for infections and infestations. For example, if you see droopy leaves, that is a sign that the tree needs to be watered. Strange patterns on the leaves may tell you that the tree has a virus. There could even be parts of the tree that are about to fall off, which could be a safety issue.

Space Out the Trees

It is of the utmost importance to space out trees so that they do not overwhelm each other. If you have numerous trees growing in one spot, they may end up taking sun and soil nutrients from each other. Also, there are some trees that excrete chemicals that are poisonous to other trees. So, you must be careful about putting a large space between trees that excrete chemicals and those that can be harmed by the chemicals.

Proper Lighting

Be cognizant of the fact that not every tree does well under the same light conditions. Some trees thrive in full sun while others thrive in full or partial shade. This has to do with the conditions that the trees evolved within millions of years.

Wind

Wind is a factor that a lot of people may not think about, though it can be just as important as sun and shade. Some trees are okay in windy areas, while some are only okay in forested areas where they are covered from the wind by other plants. So, for example, a tree that thrives on the lowest level of dense forest might not thrive in your yard if you live right next to the beach where there are strong winds.

Specific Types of Maintenance

Depending upon the tree that you have, there may be extremely specific types of maintenance that you have to do that are time dependent. For example, is there some sort of maintenance procedure that you must do before your tree reaches a certain point in the season? Perhaps there is something that you must do to the tree to prepare it for the colder season.

In conclusion, these are the things that you must think about as you take care of your tree this summer. You must account for various aspects such as wind, moisture, proper lighting, proximity to other trees and just general exams.
