Trees are wonderful. Not only do they provide exceptional air quality and shade from the summer sun, but when planted in the right places, they can increase a home’s property and curb appeal. If you’re thinking of planting some in your yard or already have some that were planted previously, it’s important that they’re properly taken care of. Trees are alive and, much like animals and humans, need proper care in order to stay healthy.
Like all living things, if trees are planted in a habitat that doesn’t agree with them, then they won’t have a chance of living very long. If you’re thinking about planting some trees, take the time to research which ones will prosper in your geographic location. Remember to take other factors into consideration, such as climate and soil.
Like most living things, trees need water to survive and stay healthy. When it comes to watering the trees in your yard, it’s very important to have a set schedule and stick to it. Underwatering and overwatering trees can cause a great deal of harm. Newly planted trees require more water than fully grown ones because they need to establish their roots in the soil.
As your newly planted tree begins to grow, mulch and fertilizer become a necessity for its well-being. Mulch allows the tree to retain moisture after being watered. It also is of great help when it comes to resisting foot traffic and other lawn equipment in its early stages of life. Fertilizer is also of great help. It allows the tree to absorb moisture more efficiently and build up its immune system from pests.
Just like getting your hair cut or taking your car in for an oil change, trimming, and pruning are both essential for your tree’s health. Calling in a professional service, like your team here at CJ's Tree Service, to do this is recommended. Removing dead and infected branches of the tree promotes healthy growth and can allow it to live long and strong.
Trees are a wonderful commodity and can not only add to the curb appeal of your home, but they can actually do wonders in promoting a better quality of life for you and your family. At CJ’s Tree Service, we can provide the knowledge and expertise that are necessary to ensure they live a long and healthy life.
