Good avenue trees should meet several criteria. They should have straight upright stems with an upright crown and a height of at least three meters.
When grown as major trees, they must be pruned regularly. During pruning, branch and trunk width is maintained at about three-quarters of an inch. Major trees should also be given a regular trimming every four years. Properly pruning a tree can improve its health, make it more resistant to disease and pests, and help reduce firewood costs.
Good avenue trees must also be free from any insects and pests. As they grow up, certain types of bugs will feed on them.
It is important that a healthy tree is properly mowed. If mowing is not done properly, the roots may be forced out into other areas of the yard. This results in root problems. The tree’s growth can also be impeded if the roots are exposed. If mowing is not done correctly, the roots of the tree can rot and break down the wood.
Proper irrigation is essential. If soil is too dry, the roots will not get enough water. Otherwise, the roots will rot. There is a relationship between soil moisture and trees.
Proper soil type is crucial for healthy avenue trees. If the soil is not properly prepared, the tree will not grow well. If proper preparation is not done, the roots will rot and break down the soil, which can result in a loss of trees.
Trees are susceptible to diseases when not pruned properly. Diseases can cause the roots to die. A healthy tree can also become diseased from insects or pests. The disease cannot live long on healthy trees.
Tree diseases are easily spread by spreading spores. These spores are carried by wind and soil movement. When a diseased tree is planted close to another healthy tree, the two trees become infected. Infected trees cannot reproduce and spread. Therefore, it is important to protect all trees, young and old.
Trees with infected roots can have poor growth and spread the disease to neighbouring trees. Trees that grow near an infected tree will have difficulty growing, even though the healthy tree nearby is not infected.
Tree diseases are often passed through contact. The infected tree will affect the healthy tree. The disease will spread through contact when the healthy tree is cut, pruned, or moved.
Tree diseases are easy to control when found early enough. In some cases, a tree will just naturally die. If the tree has been infected with a disease, it will not grow back at all. If the tree is infected, it will probably die within one year after it has been infected.
Tree diseases can be treated with medications, either applied by the homeowner or a professional. Tree medicines include pesticide, fungicide, insecticide, and herbicide. These chemicals can be purchased at a garden centre or the local nursery.
Tree medicines are most effective against mosquitoes, flies, ticks, Avenue Trees and moths. Some insecticides can be harmful to birds and rabbits. Herbicides will kill some kinds of plants. Many people use a combination of two or more tree medicines to prevent a tree disease from spreading to a nearby tree.
Tree medicines can also be used to kill insects and parasites such as ants, dragonflies, termites, bed bugs, mice, and roaches. Although pesticides are not as good as a tree medicine, they may be used to control the infestation of some garden pests. When trees are removed, it is important to use a product that contains a pesticide to cover the area where the trees were removed.
