Trees and flowering plants make our lives beautiful. Taking good care of them enhances the beauty of your garden and adds a touch of class. Trees are possibly the best friend one can have. But the result will depend on as an owner how much you take care of the trees. To avoid any situation related to stump removal, nurturing is much needed. Now, let us see the things you should not do to your trees:
1. Caring Too Much for Your Trees
When taking care of your trees, mulching and staking are two of the maintaining practices that need to be done. These need to be practiced on newly planted trees. But what do mulching and staking do? If you practice mulching and staking on the trees, it helps your trees to grow to the optimal height. This also helps to protect the trees from damage due to heavy winds. But this practice can also bring destruction to your trees if not done correctly. This is because some trees do not need staking and mulching like other trees as they are independent and grow on their own. Therefore, too much staking can cause damage to the bark and other abnormal growth of the trees. Tree loppers should have an idea about which trees need mulching as it can hurt the bark and root functioning.
2. Girdling the Trees
Nowadays it is very common in our neighbourhoods to find trees that have girdles. Girdles are mainly used by the owners to cushion the crepe myrtle from the lawnmower. But many studies show the result is negative in for the tree. Girdling often results in strangling the tree which compromises the growth and development. Some owners cover the base of the tree trunk with metal or plastic. This should not be done and should be completely avoided.
3. Limiting the Sunlight
Sunlight plays an important role for all plants and helps them in photosynthesis. Most species need ample sunlight to survive such as conifer species, pine, willow, etc. Make sure all of your trees get good exposure to sunlight otherwise they will eventually die. Dead trees require removal. And you should note that tree removal has become a little bit expensive, especially if there are a lot of trees.
4. Give It a Thought before Planting a Tree
You can spend thousands of dollars to plant beautiful trees and watch them grow only to see them cut down by the electricity utility team. Before planting a tree, make sure you plant it away from such a working area. Choose a tree that can grow to a height less than an electrical wire if you have wires in your area.
Taking good care of your trees is important as they will grow and shine naturally with help of your little nurturing. If any problem occurs, you can call a stump grinder to clean the area.
