It is Never to Early To Prepare Your Trees For Summer
After spending the winter avoiding the rain and the cold, the first few days of spring are a welcome change. With all of the parties or social gathering we may have planned for the summer months, now can be a good time for taking stock of our garden and making sure that it is looking its best.
Summer Tree Care is important for every Season
The high levels of both rain and sunshine that we receive in this part of the country cause trees and hedges to put on a tremendous level of growth in each season. Branches that are just clear at the moment may very well be blocking space or light by the middle or end of the summer. Taking care of any tree maintenance at the beginning of the season can ensure your garden is looking at its best for the whole of the summer.
Summer Tree Care can relieve the Stress on Trees
Summer can be a high stress time for newly planted, very young, or very old trees. By taking measures to protect them you can place your trees in the best position possible to survive the heat. The first step is to make sure they have an adequate supply of water.
This can be done via hand watering or setting up an irrigation system. Applying mulch around the base of the tree is also a good way of preventing water from evaporating out of the soil and ensuring that it is available for the tree to use. However, too much water and mulch can harm the tree so it is important to get the levels rights. More information about this can be found here.
Summer Tree Care Advice Available From TCA
The start of summer can be a good time to call a tree consultant to help with your garden. They can discuss your plans and provide options and solutions to maximise the best use of your space.
Tree consultants can also advise on any hazardous trees and make suggestions for planting for different areas. Traditionally summer was avoided as a time for planting new trees. With more quality root ball trees (trees grown with in bags of compost with a well-developed root system) available, trees can be successfully planted all year round, as long as they are given good aftercare.
