If you are one who likes to do it yourself, these tips for a healthy tree are for you.
Remove all grass, weeds, and other plants around the base of a tree to create a tree ring. Fill the tree ring with wood chips. By doing this, you remove plants that compete for water and nutrients, and reduce the chance of mechanical damage due to a string trimmer or lawn mower getting too close to the tree.
If your tree is planted in your lawn, chances are high that your lawn sprinklers won’t be enough to water the tree. Consider additional watering.
