When it comes to managing a commercial property, one major element is an attractive landscape. Although you may not often think about them, the trees around your commercial location can actually influence what your customers think about your business. Avoid these three frequent commercial tree care errors!
Improper Tree Pruning
Pruning your tree helps shape it and allow it to grow in healthier ways. However, if you don’t do it right, you could end up hurting or killing your tree! Deadwood isn’t only unattractive – it can present a danger to your building, the cars parked around it, and your employees and customers. Within the tree care industry, several guidelines have been established to direct homeowners and business owners alike on the proper way to prune their trees.
You’ve Planted Too Deeply
Another unexpected problem with commercial tree care could appear if you’ve planted your trees too deeply. While this might not seem like a problem, it actually is. Roots need to be kept in shallow areas to better absorb water and nutrients from the soil around it. If the tree roots are too deep, they won’t be as effective in sustaining the tree. Keep the tree’s root flare parallel to the ground when you plant your next tree. If it isn’t parallel on a tree that is already there, you may have to dig the tree up.
In some cases, you might not be watering your trees enough. Or, as the case may be, you could be watering them too much as well. When trees don’t get adequate amounts of water, it strains their ability to properly perform photosynthesis – essentially, they’re not getting enough food. This means that their growth is stunted. Your commercial tree care routine might include automated irrigation systems, but these systems can’t account for changes in weather conditions or the changing needs of growing trees.
