Taking care of the trees throughout the year is necessary. Trees require proper maintenance during winter and summer so that they can flourish, blossom, and bloom correctly during spring.
Everyone loves adoring the thriving trees in the spring and watching the green leaves shed in the fall. What most people don’t know is that there is a significant effort behind this all. During the intense weathers like summer and winter, these trees require extra care because of which they blossom the rest of the year flawlessly.
Out of all the trees require most care during the summers. Since every season has a different effect on the trees, therefore, the care and maintenance need to be done accordingly as well. We’ll discuss how to take care of the trees in summers below:
Cooldown the temperature of the trees:
Any hardscaping materials around the trees can intensify and escalate the heat. Yes, it unbelievable, but it’s true. This is the primary reason why landscaping materials need to be chosen carefully. For instance, decomposed granite which is used like a mulch under absorbs the intense heat from the sun making the surrounding from the trees hotter. This can damage the trees quite a lot. Therefore, it is essential to keep such stuff as much away as possible. Other than this, glass, structures, water surfaces and block walls also act as a heat sponge which can decrease the health of the tree a lot.
Take care of the twigs and leaves:
Observe the trees carefully. If you see that the leaves and the twigs are falling during the summers, then there is definitely something wrong. While this is a normal process during the fall, the shedding of leaves can be unusual during summers. There are numerous reasons for this. Some of the most common ones are;
- It is the reaction to the soil compaction.
- The shade-loving tree is planted in extreme sunlight and is reacting to the intense heat.
- The soil might be saturated.
- The intense heat caused drought and water scarcity, causing the trees to react.
However, there is a solution to all these issues. If you water the plants regularly and plant the trees on the right spot, then the chances of the healthy development of trees are more.
Always water your trees at the time:
What do plants need the most? Water!!!
Water is the first and primary need of a plant, especially during summers. Watering the plant consistently helps in maintaining the health of the tree and promotes healthy growth as well. During the initial years, the trees are usually more prone to heat and droughts, which is why deep watering is preferred for firm root establishment.
Thus, it concludes that trees require extra and special care during the summers to flourish and bloom appropriately throughout the year.
Therefore make sure you keep all these things in mind to maintain the trees properly during summers. Even though there is some extra effort, but honestly it is worth it.
