Trees provide many benefits to our health and everyday living and add natural beauty to our homes. Walking through a garden surrounded by beautiful trees can reduce stress and provide our properties with shade and cleaner air.
To ensure your beautiful trees remain strong and vibrant over many years to come, avoid these common tree care mistakes:
Pruning done right promotes healthy growth and a fruitful harvest. On the other hand, improper pruning can cause permanent damage or even shorten a tree’s life. Pruning during the wrong time of the year, cutting the branches incorrectly, or cutting off too much can seriously impact the tree’s health.
When done correctly, mulch can provide both aesthetic and functional benefits to our trees and gardens, including improvements to soil moisture, fertility, and reductions in weeds, diseases, and soil erosion. However, improper mulching can lead to suffocation of the roots, can contribute to waterlogged conditions, and can even cause the trunk to rot.
Established trees don’t require frequent watering. Too much water can negatively impact the roots, causing them to rot or even causing the death of a tree. Applying the right amount of water depending on the type of your trees is essential for dynamic growth and healthy production of fruit.
