4 Ways To Protect Your Trees And Promote Growth

If you have young trees on your property, and you really want them to grow nice and large someday, you need to make sure that you protect your trees and promote the growth of your trees.

Pull Up the Weeds

The first thing that you need to do is make sure there are not weeds growing under your trees. Weeds compete with your tree for water. They lurk on the surface, trying to grab up the water before it can get to your trees. Pull up and remove the weeds that are growing under your tree so that your tree is not competing with plants for water and resources.

Put Mulch Under Your Trees

The second thing you need to do is put mulch around the base of your trees after you remove the weeds. The mulch will help keep the weeds from growing back. Don't put the mulch right next to the base of the tree. You want to give your trees a couple of inches of breathing room with the mulch. However, mulch is really beneficial for your trees. It helps your trees retain water better and helps insulate the soil and keep the temperature of the soil more consistent throughout the year when it is really hot or really cold outside.

Fertilizer Your Trees

Third, you should fertilize your trees. Fertilizing your trees at least once a year will help give your trees the nutrients that they need to thrive. Not everyone adds fertilizer to their trees, but it is a good move to make. Proper nutrients will help make sure that your trees do not get diseased. Fertilizer can help make up for nutrients that may be lacking in urban settings.

Water Your Trees

When your trees are young, it is a good idea to water your trees, especially in the spring and summer when it is hot outside. Watering your trees will help ensure that your trees have enough water to grow and thrive. Even when your trees are more established, they will still appreciate the extra water. A little extra water when it is really hot can really help your trees thrive.

If you want your trees to thrive, you need to make sure that you take good care of them. Keep weeds away from your trees. Put mulch around the base of your trees to protect them. Fertilizer your trees and water your trees. If you need help taking care of your trees, contact a full service tree company that can help you take care of your trees. 

About Me

After I decided to list my home for sale, I realized that there were a few things I needed to do if I wanted to sell my property quickly. For starters, I knew that I needed to have a few trees in my yard taken down, since they were too big and blocking the view of the street. I also wanted to have the trees in my yard pruned so that they would bloom properly in the spring. After they were trimmed, the entire yard looked incredible.
