What is tree ‘aftercare’?
There are many aspects of aftercare. We can make sure your young tree is inspected on every site visit for: pests or infestations, soil deficiencies, disease and external damage cause by weather or animals. This means any problems can be dealt with before any long lasting damage is inflicted.
Another important aspect of tree aftercare is formative pruning, this technique is usually undertaken from years one to five of a young tree’s life. This result of formative pruning is a well developed branch system, which means the tree will grow into a stronger more productive specimen.
Young trees need regular watering to promote good health and prevent disease. In fact, the main cause of a young tree failing to thrive is insufficient watering in the first couple of years after planting, however waterlogged soil can also kill young trees, so it’s important to seek advice when it comes to watering young trees. Our arborists are experts in tree planting and aftercare, whether you’re looking for advice or full tree management, we can help.
