A general rule of thumb is to water your garden about once a week. However, if there is a heatwave you may have to increase the frequency. You will know when it is time as the surface will look hard and will not hold together in the palm of your hand. The best time to water your garden in Summer is early morning before it gets too hot, giving your plants plenty of time to absorb any moisture on the leaves and dry off before nightfall. Do not over water, as this drowns your plants. It will result in a limited oxygen supply, hence the plants are not able to breathe. If you live in the Gold Coast, Byron Bay and Tweed Heads and have any concerns with the trees or plants in your garden, contact Tree Essence Arborists on 1300 487 333.
A Health Management Plan can be taken out for any type of tree to ensure they remain strong and healthy. Once set up, you do not have to worry about the continual maintenance of your garden. So, a Health Management Plan is an annual occurrence that involves a number of action items, depending on what type of trees are to be serviced. Such as a soil injection treatment which delivers pesticide or chemical fertiliser into a tree through the root zone. Removing dead fronds from palm trees and adding a canopy foliage spray, as the cane beetle is a contributing factor for infestation. Pruning, being very careful not to over prune as this causes stress to the tree.

It is important to take a good look around your garden and property to ensure that your trees are in good condition, in preparation for the inevitable summer storms. This will reduce any possible risks, keeping your family, home and pets safe. So, identify any possible hazards. Make sure there is adequate clearance between your trees, your roofline and power lines. Hanging branches can cause significant infrastructure damage. Look for aged, decaying or deformed tree branches. Check the density of your tree canopies. Thinning branches can be an indication that your trees are stressed. Certain types of trees and palms are prone to fungus and rot, so keep an eye out for this one. Being pro-active can give you peace of mind.

An Arborist by definition is a person who is trained in the art and science of planting, caring for, and maintaining plants and trees. They have a wealth of knowledge and experience in all plant and tree-related issues. A qualified Arborist that has years of experience understands the physiology of a tree and how a tree moves and reacts when being cut. Also, they are well skilled in knowing how to lower a tree down in confined spaces, keeping assets, people and pets safe and secure. A very experienced Arborist will know the difference between cutting down a tree in Summer and the same tree species in Winter, as the tree can react differently. Reputation and experience is an integral factor in choosing a good Arborist such as Tree Essence. Only AQF (Australian Qualified Framework) Level 5 Arborist reports are accepted by Council. Tree Essence are AQF Level 5 Arborists, so give them a call on 1300 487 333 if you live near the Gold Coast, Byron Bay and Tweed Heads and need assistance.
Find out how large the tree will grow to, in its maturity. Find out where it originates from in case it is a weed species. For example, a Camphor Laurel is from China and it not recognised as a weed there, however it is classed as a noxious weed in Australia. Know what type of soil the tree best flourishes in. A Bottle tree likes a well-drained soil, so clay soil would not be advisable. Find a suitable location in the garden to suit the trees growing pattern. Does the tree like full or partial sun and know where your drains and any other services are located in the garden so that the tree does not impact these. Fig trees need lots of space, so plant them away from the house and driveway. If you live near the ocean, the Desert Star or Norfolk Pine are more suitable to plant as they have a glabrous leaf and are salt tolerant.
