How to Maintain Healthy Trees for the Summer

Summer is now here, and this means it is time to start thinking about how to keep all of your trees healthy.

Summer is now here, and this means it is time to start thinking about how to keep all of your trees healthy and thriving during the warm summer months. That is why we’ve compiled a few tips to help keep your trees healthy this summer. Read on to learn more!

Correct Watering

A solid rule of thumb is to water your trees deeply at least once a week, making sure the water reaches your root zone. Avoid any frequent shallow watering since it could lead to shallow and weak root systems. If planted newly, your trees could require more frequent watering until the root system becomes established.

Plenty of Mulch

Mulch is a nice way to keep your trees healthy during the summertime. It helps to retain moisture, suppress your weeds, and regulate soil temperature. Apply about two to three-inch layers of mulch around the base of your trees, making sure to leave about a few inches of space around your trunk.

Pruning with Purpose

In the summer, avoid pruning too much since it can cause stress to your tree. Instead, shift your focus to removing dead, damaged, and diseased branches to help improve air circulation and reduce the risk of possible pests and diseases. Prune in the early morning or night when the temperatures are cooler to help minimize stress on the trees. For professional pruning and trimming services, Harford Tree’s team of experts is here to help any time you need it!

Protecting Against Pests

One of the main threats to tree health during summer is pests. Insects like mites, scales, and aphids can cause legitimate damage to trees by feeding on their branches and leaves. To help protect your trees, inspect them regularly for signs of possible pest infestation and treat them accordingly.
