When you think about summer, chances are you begin to daydream about spending your days in the sun either at the pool or on the lake. Perhaps you think about backyard barbecues or trips to the park but whatever it is that you are looking forward to, we very much doubt that one of them is not taking care of the trees in your yard. However, if you want to enjoy summer to the fullest of your abilities, you probably cannot do so without having trees around. Therefore, without ensuring your trees are happy and healthy, you may find that your lawn is not a very tempting place to spend your time. With that said, we’d like to give you a better idea of how to care for your trees as the days get hotter and longer this season.
Having your trees inspected often will give you a good idea of what sort of shape your trees are in. You can find out if there are pests or diseases that are working to destroy your trees and then make a plan for how to handle the situation. Some of the warning signs that you might have pests or a disease are the leaves on the tree turning brown, a sticky substance on the leaves, mold on the leaves of the tree trunk, spots on the bark and more.
You should also make sure that you are checking to ensure your trees are getting enough water as well. When trees are dehydrated, they become stressed and can begin to show signs of such. Think about how you get a blemish when you are stressed out, your tree will get blemishes too!
Many people go extremely overboard when it comes to pruning their trees. This often leads to them doing more harm than good. While it is true that you will need to trim your tree every now and then, you have to be extremely particular when you do so. Simply cut away any limbs that are unsafe so that you can ensure there is no harm done should a storm cause damage to the area.
Strengthening Your Trees
Using the right kind of fertilizer can help you to protect your trees even when the heat is extreme this summer. You can also cable, brace or remove limbs that are weak or look as though they may cause damage to the limbs around them. This will also help to protect the tree as a whole should there be a storm occur that causes damage.
