Totally Trees: the Essentials of Tree Care

Not everyone plans on growing trees in their garden. You might plant them yourself. But often you end up buying or renting a property that comes complete with trees. You might not be keen on caring for them, but perhaps you enjoy the way they look. Many trees don’t need much maintenance. But there are certain issues to which you might need to pay close attention. You might need to protect your trees from disease. You may need to keep the branches trimmed back or protect a tree’s roots. It’s possible to hire someone to care for your trees, but keen gardeners prefer to try it themselves. However, there can be challenges in caring for trees, due to their size.

Know Your Tree

If you want to care for your trees properly, it’s a good idea to get to know them first. If you plant them yourself, you know what they are. You’ve probably done some research on the care they need to make sure that it’s suitable for your level. However, if you’ve inherited a tree with a new house, you might not even know what it is. Your first job is to identify it so that you know how it grows and what you need to do to look after it. It’s important to be aware of issues such as whether it’s sensitive to the cold or any diseases.
