The care and maintenance of trees is vital to sustaining the health of our ecosystem. By getting a tree care professional to prune and remove deadwood, maintaining the health of soil and tree removal if required will be key to keeping the health of your ecosystem. By contacting a Tree Care professional they will provide appropriate services to any tree in any environment to ensure the health and growth is sustainable and managed.

Water is key to the survival of any living being on our planet. A tree suffering from lack of water is vulnerable to pests and diseases and transplant shock which may result in death of the tree or trees. Here are some key things to note for the appropriate watering of trees.

1. The first 2 to 4 years of the trees life it will require watering regularly to establish the trees health.

2. Trees will need water at least once a week. In dry periods you will need more frequent watering, and in wet seasons or periods of heavy rain the tree will obviously not need as much.

3. Watering should take place in the morning for it to be most effective.

Unlike plants trees don’t usually require fertiliser. Fertilisers are used to promote growth that is already sprouting and is not usually used to fix an unhealthy tree. Over fertilising can be very harmful as it will affect the growth and may in some cases cause the tree to die. The importance of understanding how fertiliser can affect the life of your tree is vital to know when planting or maintain an existing tree.

1. Don’t fertilize when first planting and tree.

2. Generally fertilizer is applied to the roots at the start of the second growth season.

3. Read all instructions on the label of the fertilizer and strictly follow manufactures details on how to correctly apply it.

 

Pruning The Tree

Pruning Trees is a common practice to maintain steady and effective growth. Pruning is for removing dead branches, promoting new growth and to remove any obstructing branches which may create hazards to power lines, new developments and even your own home. It is important not to prune or lop any branches during the dormant season unless there is dead growth that needs removal. Contacting your local Arborist is the safest and most effective way to prune and remove any branches as it is a very demanding and dangerous job.

Understanding the reason for removing tree branches is extremely important as no pruning should be done unless it is required. By removing too much of the tree, this reduces its chance to recover and can cause a “dwarfing” effect. Any cut to a living tree is technically a wound and is important to make clean and precise cuts to keep the damage to a minimum. Pruning is very beneficial to the trees lifespan and health and there are a number of reasons for lopping branches which include:

* training your tree growth by removing precarious branches

* to maintain or to reduce the size of the tree.

* And importantly maintaining tree health by removing criss-cross branches and dead branches, which allows sunlight and air flow to promote healthy growth amongst the tree.

As pruning and lopping trees is a very dangerous job and there are many factors to take into account,  contacting your local certified Arborist will guarantee your safety and tree care will be done at the highest professional level.
