The early stages
Finding, selecting, and planting your tree
If you are considering adding a tree to your property, it’s important to start out on the right foot by choosing a tree species that works to meet your needs. Foliage, climate, and individual property layout specifications are all important to consider when choosing a type of tree. Working with a trusted arborist is always a good way to find a tree to suit your needs. It’s also important to buy your tree from a trusted nursery, looking for any red flags before making your purchase. Once you’ve made your purchase and it’s time to plant, be sure to dig your hole and fill it to the recommendations given by the nursery or your arborist.
The importance of mulch and water
Mulch and water are two essential ingredients for trees of all kinds. As most people know, water is the lifeblood of trees. However, each species of tree requires water in different amounts, so it’s important to read up on your tree when developing your watering regimen. Like water, mulch is also important for trees of all species and ages. Mulch sits atop the soil and retains water to keep tree roots moist. It also hinders weed growth and insulates the soil for extra defense against damaging heat and cold spells.
Improve Health & Appearance
Tree pruning and disease treatment
Virtually all trees can benefit from pruning at some point in their lives. When done properly, pruning can improve the overall health and appearance of a tree while preventing any unwanted growth that may adversely affect your property. To ensure your tree gets the best prune possible, it’s generally a good idea to schedule trims with certified tree care professional in your area.
Another important facet of tree care is the identification, treatment, and prevention of diseases and pest infestations. In Maryland, diseases such as Dutch elm disease, chlorosis, and sycamore anthracnose are particularly common. By working with an experienced and certified tree care team, you can identify signs of disease in your trees and develop a treatment and prevention plan going forward.
