Maintenance for Young and Mature Trees

Proper tree maintenance is extremely important for keeping both young and mature trees beautiful and healthy. That’s why you need to have a basic understanding of how to maintain young and mature trees. In this blog, we’ll give Toronto residents short insights into caring for young and mature trees.

Maintenance for Young Trees

Caring for Young Trees Caring for young trees mainly includes watering, weeding and pruning. Now, we’ll explain how to water, weed and prune young trees correctly.

Regular watering is a key to good health of young trees. That means that you need to water young trees on a regular basis. By doing so, you’ll be able to prevent weak surface roots and many other tree health issues.

It’s recommended to water young trees once a week. Make sure that you water a tree 4-6 inches below the surface. Thus, water will reach tree’s roots. You need to know that soil has to be moist after watering a tree. However, soil doesn’t have to be wet.

It’s widely known that weeds consume water and nutrients that a young tree needs. For this reason, weeding has to be a part of a young tree maintenance program. You need to remove weeds and grass from the base of a young tree.

Pruning is very important for health of young trees as well. However, you have to be very careful when pruning young trees. Pruning can cause huge damage to young trees if done improperly. So, if you don’t have experience in pruning young trees it’s best to ask tree care professionals for help.

It’s a great idea to place mulch around young trees. By doing so, you’ll manage to protect young tree’s roots from dying out. Mulch will also help a tree conserve moisture and will provide protection from weeds.

Maintenance for Mature Trees

Maintenance for Mature TreesCaring for mature trees includes watering, pruning, pest control and disease prevention. Learn how to maintain mature trees properly.

When it comes to watering mature trees, you need to ensure that a tree consumes the right amount of water. A mature tree has to consume enough water. On the other hand, a tree shouldn’t consume more water than it needs. So, it is crucial for you to know how much water your tree needs.

Pruning delivers multiple important benefits to mature trees. Pruning helps reduce the risk of branch breakage and hazards dramatically. However, it is crucial to prune trees properly. When pruning mature trees, it is essential to remove dead as well as diseased branches. If you don’t know how to prune mature trees correctly ask a certified arborist in Toronto for help!
