Summer is here! As temperatures rise and people make use of their yards, trees are often a place where memories are made. Here are a few things to keep in mind to make sure your yard stays beautiful and healthy through the summer months:
- This is not the best time to plant new trees: While the best time to plant new trees really depends on the type of tree, for most types of trees, summer is not the best time. Due to the high temperatures, new trees have a slimmer chance of survival.
- Be sure not to over-water: One may be prone to watering your tree more often than usual in the summer months due to the hot weather, but it is also possible to over-water your trees. Keep in mind that the best way to know when you should water your tree is to look at the soil condition. It can also be helpful to use mulch, as it helps to hold in moisture in the roots and it also helps to regulate the temperature.
- Call in professional tree surgeons when pruning and trimming your trees: While one may consider pruning to be a safe and easy process, it is in your tree’s best interest to hire professional tree surgeons. When trimming during times of growth, one must be cognisant not to remove more than 10% of the tree branches, as this can put your tree at risk for disease or even pests.
- Get your trees inspected: Notice your tree having an irregular growth pattern? Caused by poor pruning, severe weather, or abnormal growing conditions, poor tree architecture can indicate a weakness or a structural imbalance. While there are many indicators to determine an unhealthy tree, it is in your tree’s best interest to consult with professional tree surgeons. Professional tree surgeons have the experience and technology needed to provide you with a true diagnosis, as well as the next best steps you should take.
