Tree Care Tips and Tricks

Year round tree care in Round Rock TX is crucial to keep your trees alive during extreme temperature changes. Below are some key tips and tricks that you can use to improve the health of your tree and ensure that they last all throughout the year. 

  1. Watering 

If you have just planted a new tree, it is best to immediately hydrate that area with water. This will allow the tree to settle into the dirt and moisturize the roots. The water will ensure the growth of a healthy tree for your property. 

  1. Mow your grass 3-10 feet around your planted tree 

How much you should mow around your tree should depend on the size of your tree. Obviously the bigger the tree, the wider the radius will be.  It is bad to have grass too close to your trees because the dense grass roots will compete with the tree’s roots for water and the nutrients needed to live. 

  1. Mulch your Tree

It is key to mulch new trees, because mulch serves as a barrier between harsh temperature changes and the tree’s roots. You should not mow your lawn around your tree so the mulch can also serve as a visual guide as to what areas to stay away from. 

  1. Fertilize

Plants are usually fertilized from all of the plants that live and grow around it, such as leaves. However, since for instance leaves are not visually appealing we rake these plants off of our property leaving the tree with no natural way to obtain its nutrients. Therefore, getting fertilizer will regularly release nutrients that your tree needs in order to be healthy. 

  1. Prune your Trees

This is an important step that you should not forget to skip.  Pruning trees will get rid of the dead branches or deadwood that is preventing your tree from growing to its full potential. This will allow for new growth because removing the bad branches will allow the tree to nourish just the healthy areas.
