How to Keep Your Trees Healthy

Keeping trees healthy is not just essential for the aesthetics and safety of your landscape but also improves the quality of the environment. However, like other living things, trees need routine care and maintenance to ensure they remain in tip-top condition throughout their lifespan. Scheduling regular inspections with a reputable tree care company goes a long way in ensuring your trees grow healthy and robust. Driscoll Tree Service has a well-trained and experienced team of arborists ready to address any concerns you have regarding tree health. Here are tips recommended to help you keep your trees in optimal condition.

Regular Pruning

Pruning is a vital part of tree maintenance, and it entails removing diseased or dead limbs before they affect the tree's overall health. If you detect signs of infestation or infection, hiring a reliable tree service for professional pruning is crucial. Our arborists leverage state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to enhance the effectiveness of the process and encourage new growth to attain a specific shape.

Water Deeply and Regularly

Water is essential for your trees to remain healthy, especially during summer when the temperatures are high. When you turn on your irrigation system or use a hose to water your trees, ensure the water reaches the roots so the tree can withstand drought. Effective watering is often overlooked, affecting the general well-being of your landscape. Consult our tree care expert to ensure your trees get sufficient water without the risk of underwatering and overwatering.

Mulch

Mulching is the process of applying organic material around a tree to enhance the soil's moisture retention and provide vital nutrients when it decomposes. Summer and winter are characterized by extreme temperatures, which compromise the health of your trees. However, applying mulch keeps the roots warm in winter and helps to retain moisture in summer, making it crucial maintenance practice that should be done throughout the year.

Fertilize

When your tree shows signs of deterioration, it is not always caused by infection, infestation, or physical damage. When the soil lacks sufficient nutrients, your trees can't absorb everything it needs to grow and develop. Fertilizing the soil minimizes the low nutrient content, adding the specific minerals lacking in the soil. Before fertilizing your trees, consult a tree care company to avoid over-fertilizing, which can damage your trees. We recommend using a slow-release fertilizer that releases nutrients over time, reducing the frequency of application and over-fertilizing.

Insect and Disease Control

secondary

Diseases and infestations usually go undetected until it is too late, and the tree has sustained severe damage. However, sometimes it is difficult to detect trivial signs of infection or infestation for an untrained eye, hence the need to schedule routine maintenance with a reputable tree service provider. Our arborist will conduct a comprehensive assessment to ensure these signs are detected and addressed in the early stages before wreaking havoc on other healthy branches or surrounding trees.
